Each low-cost View-Master Reel — for use in View-Master Stereoscopes and Projectors — contains seven stereo Kodakchrome scenes.

Vintage ViewMaster Model C

From the owner: “View-Master Model C, pictured here, was produced between 1946 and 1955. It was made from bakelite and was the first viewer to have a slot into which the reels were placed for viewing. This particular model (3798) dates from approximately 1950, which makes sense, since my parents would have bought it for me when I was at about 3-4 years old. Believe it or not, all reels made for any View Master will work in any model from 1939 to present.”
