Two GAF viewmasters with 21 sets of viewmaster disks, including Casper the ghost, Sleeping Beauty, Huckleberry Hound, Scooby Doo, Flipper and Alice in Wonderland. Disks showing places around the world are included as well.
The view master allowed the user to see images in 3D in a similar way to the stereoscope, where two images are viewed simultaneously.
The view master was patented in 1940. It was originally promoted as an alternative to the scenic postcard. However it was used during WWII as a training device. After the war it became a very popular toy.
