Here are a few more selections from some "Personal Viewmaster" reels. The views themselves are nothing special, though it was neat to be able to view them in 3-D when seen through the viewers. Since the reels were loaned to me, I only had time to scan one of the images per stereo pair.
There's Casey Jr., chugging through the patchwork quilt of Storybook Land. This attraction is very much like a large version of a tabletop train layout; it is easy to imagine the whole ride reduced to the size of the top of a ping pong table. In fact, I want that right now, in my living room.
Casey again; the stylized rockwork is really cool.
You know what Skull Rock needed? Giant googly eyes. Genius, right?
And finally, here are the sculptures at Snow White's grotto. As is often the case, Dopey got cut out of the picture. How come there isn't a Major Pepperidge grotto anywhere?
