Stereo Viewers

 
I remember my first View-Master viewer as a pre-teen and the excitement of buying and viewing a new reel.  I rekindled that excitement recently when I ran across a viewer in an antique store . . . I had to buy it.  In doing some research, I discovered the Tru-Vue viewers.  They preceded the View-Master by about 8 years.  Well I got hooked and bought a few examples and some great films and reels.  Below is an abbreviated history of stereo viewers and a look at my modest collection.

Stereoscope Viewer History
Back to the TOP

Stereoscopes, also known as stereopticons or stereo viewers, were one of America's most popular forms of entertainment in the late 1800s and early 1900s.  The first patented stereoscope was invented by Sir Charles Wheatstone in 1838.  Wheatstone had experimented with simple stereoscopic drawings in 1832, several years before photography was invented.  Later, the two principles were combined to form the stereoscope.

However, Wheatstone's stereoscope was not as popular as a later version, made by Oliver Wendell Holmes.  Called the Holmes Stereo Viewer, it was the most common type of stereoscope from 1881 until 1939.  

A stereo card is composed of two pictures mounted next to each other, and a set of lenses to view the pictures through.  Each picture is taken from a slightly different viewpoint that corresponds closely to the spacing of the eyes.  The left picture represents what the left eye would see, and likewise for the right picture.  When observing the pictures through a special viewer, the pair of two-dimensional pictures merge together into a single three-dimensional photograph.

We can see a 3D picture through a stereoscope for the same reason a building appears three-dimensional.  The right and left eyes see a slightly different version of the same scene, and taken together, we get an illusion of depth.  This phenomenon had been known for quite some time, ever since the ancient Greek mathematician Euclid discovered the principles of binocular vision.

Early stereo photographs were taken with a camera mounted on a tripod with a sliding bar. Once the first picture was taken and a new photographic plate was inserted, the camera was moved about 7 cm along the bar (approximately adult eye spacing).  Then, the second picture was taken.

Stereoscopes continued to be widespread in America until the 1930s.  Then stereoscope production declined, likely due to the new interest in motion pictures.  However, the stereoscope continues to offer viewers something that no ordinary photograph or movie can offer, namely a sense of depth and image realism.  Descendants of the stereoscope are the Tru-Vue and View-Master . . . and the View-Master is currently a popular children's toy.

Tru-Vue Viewer History
Back to the TOP

TRU-VUE Inc., Rock Island, IL was founded in 1931 and after the 1933 "Century of Progress Exposition" in Chicago grew and flourished through the 1930's and 40's. The original viewers used 35mm filmstrips, generally containing 14 stereo views, which were pulled through the viewer using a lever (visible at the bottom of the left-hand photograph at left). In 1949 Tru-Vue sold over a million reels of film!. 1950 saw Tru-Vue introduce their first color films, this was a direct attempt to compete with Sawyers View-Master. There were over 400 filmstrips made by Tru-Vue and more were available from third-parties. The quality of the 3D presented is generally very good, although the films need to be handled carefully. The color "Stereochrome" film tends to loose it's color with age.

Filmstrips and viewers were made between 1933 and 1952. Ultimately the Tru-Vue company was acquired by Sawyers View-Master in 1952, who wanted the rights to Disney licenses held by the company.

A filmstrip card version of the viewer (image at right) was manufactured in Beaverton, Oregon after Sawyers took the Tru-Vue company over in 1952. Rather than using filmstrips as before, it used cards consisting of 7 stereo pairs. Sawyers chose not to use Kodachrome film and so the pictures have faded to a monochrome magenta finish these days, having lost most of their yellow and blue coloration. Production of the Tru-Vue cards continued until the mid 1960's

View-Master Viewer history
Back to the TOP

In 1939, View-Master was first introduced at the New York World's Fair. Intended as a souvenir, it was originally marketed through photo shops and stationary stores. Through the years, the product has changed its appearance to be aimed at a more juvenile audience. However, the high quality of View-Master is still evidenced today by their continuing quest to produce a quality product and the company's on-going efforts to introduce a large number of new reels each year.

William Gruber, an organ maker who lived in Portland, Oregon, invented the View-Master. One day, while visiting the Oregon Caves, he met Harold Graves, the president of Sawyer's, Inc. (a company that specialized in picture post cards). Magic happened. Mr. Graves was amazed at Mr. Gruber's invention and, together, they created the successful company that exists today.

During the 1940's and 50's, the company mainly produced reels of various national parks and scenic attractions across the country. Between 1942 and the end of World War II View-Master was kept busy producing millions of reels for the U.S. Government that aided the military in airplane/ship identification and range estimation.

In 1951 View-Master acquired their competitor the Tru-Vue Company of Rock Island, III. This was a gold mine for View-Master because Tru-Vue held the license to use Disney characters. From that time on View-Master was able to produce reels for both the adult and children's market.

Several board games utilizing View-Master reels have been developed over the years. Many styles and colors of viewers have also been marketed since the product's inception in 1939. The early round Model A and Model B viewers are available but becoming a bit more difficult to locate. The black Bakelite Model C viewer is, has been and always will be near indestructible and can be found at nearly every flea market and antique shop. Later viewers are also commonly found by today's collector. All reels fit in every viewer produced by the company throughout the years.

View-Master has undergone ownership changes over the years and was acquired most recently by Fisher Price. Fisher Price now includes View-Master as a regular part of their annual catalog and makes all of the decisions regarding new product releases.

From Niagara Falls to Mickey Mouse, The Apollo Landing to Tom Corbett Space Cadet, many subjects have become popular View-Master reels.

Reel, Sleeve and Packet Designs
Back to the TOP
1  

View-Master Reels consist of a 9 cm disk containing 14 pictures, comprised of 7 stereo pairs. Sawyers and GAF reels used Kodachrome film and the colors last very well, even after 60 years.  Reels were sold individually or in 3 reel packs inside an outer packet.  Some 3 packs included a descriptive booklet.

2  

GAF Talking View-Master reels have a clear plastic record attached to the back of the reel.  An arm in the viewer has a needle that engages with the record when the Sound Bar in pressed.  These reels were generally sold in 3 reel packets with a small booklet.

Identifying View-Master Reels

Back to the TOP

Variant No. Circa Images Notes

S1

1948-54

The S1 style, seen in Sawyer's first multi-reel packets, was characterized by monochrome line illustrations on the envelope front.

S2

1954-55

 

S2 packets shared the use of line drawings with the S1 style, though cover art was simpler and moved into the background. Typography was the principal design element.

S3D

1955-57

Two- or three-color line drawings, like those in previous packet styles, filled the "window" in the earliest S3 packets, which collectors designate "S3D."

 

Top right circle defined the Series only.

S3

 

1955-57 Full-color photographic images soon replaced line art on packet covers to produce what is known today as the standard S3 variant.

Top right circle defined the Series only.

S3oh

 

1955-57 This S3 packet (S3oh) has a different back design.

Top right circle defined the Series only.

S3sb

1955-57 This S3 packet (S3sb) has a different back design.

Top right circle displayed the Series name only.

S4

1955-60

 

Top right circle displayed both the Series name and Packet number.

SU (Universal)

1958-66

The "Sawyer's Universal" variant was a generic packet design, used as a stop-gap when a new or revised packet needed to be shipped but new cover artwork had not yet been created.

S5

1960-63

 

With the S5 packet style the cover photograph broke out of the frame imposed by the previous S3 and S4 designs to occupy the full face of the envelope; many collectors consider this to be the high point of View-Master packet design.

SP (Special)
SH (Hanging)
Early 60's

 

The sleeves pivoted around the eyelet, so the reels could be swung out for examination by prospective buyers; to satisfy retailer requests, the eyelet also enabled hanging displays.

 

Sold only in selected test markets, the experiment was soon abandoned.  Hard to find.

S6 1963-66

 

The S6 packets continued the full face artwork of the S5 style and were characterized by a white oval containing the View-Master logo, the words "21 Stereo Pictures," and the Sawyer's blue diamond logo.

S6a

1963-66

With a decorative art logo

S6b

1963-66

With a new typography logo

S6c

1963-66

The last S variant substituted the GAF (General Aniline & Film Corporation) logo for the Sawyer's logo.

G1/G2

1967-70

The G1 and G2 packets retained the full face artwork of the S5 and S6 styles.

The oval style logo feature of the S6 was replaced with a Rectangular style.

G1

1067-69

The G1 has the GAF logo with a black background with the Portland, OR address.

G2

1069-70 The G2 has the GAF logo with a red background with the Portland, OR or New York, NY address.

"Stereo Pictures" text added.

G3/G6

1970-81

The G3 style set the basic design for View-Master packets until the introduction of blister pack style packaging in 1982.

G3

1970-75

The G3 variant

G4

1975-77

The G4 variant added a Copyright date.

G5

1977-78

The G5 variant centered the logo and the text above the logo was removed.

G6

1978-81

The G6 variant reintroduced the decorative art logo & "3D Pictures" text was added.
