The Stereoscope on a Spring Day in New Hampshire Joyful226
A little about this greeting. The background of this creation is the Church in this picture is a spring day in Keene New Hampshire. the Church was built and was Consecrated Oct.29, 1788 as a Congregational Church. It has been added onto and raised but the main structure is still the same today. In 1963 it merged with the Church of Christ it became The United Church of Christ Church. This is a spring picture in the City square of Keene NH I took the picture. The Stereoscopes are on the table and the lady is holding one along with some of their slides, was a favorite way to pass the time of day for nearly 100 years. In 1861 Oliver Wendell Holmes created and deliberately did not patent a handheld version, Shown in this greeting. The original stereoscope which was big and expensive, dates from the 1850s, all consisted of two prismatic lenses and a wooden stand to hold the stereo card. This type, above, of stereoscope remained in production for a century and there are still companies making them in limited production currently. I admit I have one. Well I have three but only brought one with me to NH. I have a bunch of cards that can take you in 3-D around the world and to the Worlds Fairs and all kinds of places. Some cards were hand tinted most were black and white.They are still the most amazing 3D I have ever seen. When I was a little girl I use to sit with my Grandparents in their home and Grandma would get out the viewers (you could adjust them to you see them perfectly by sliding the card holder forward or backward)and stacks and stacks of cards all sorted in specially designed drawers just for the stereoscope slides. The great thing about the viewers was there was no need for glasses to view them. When I was with my grandparents we would read all the good information on the back of the card, slide it into the holder and view it and you were transported into a different world and time. We could take a trip around the world right from the dining room's table, or see the Worlds Fairs or old fashioned Christmases and so much more It was great. Oh my I still love my stereoscope! (which belonged to my grandparents). I have also introduced my grandchildren to the thrill of real 3-D nothing has ever come close to it in viewability and clarity as the stereoscope. The Viewmaster is alright but not nearly as clear or as good as these and the stereoscope doesn't mess up like the View Master does. There are those that have done a rather good job of trying to create other viewers some you still have to wear glasses so you can see 3-D but still they pale in comparison to the Stereoscope. by Connie Hull May you have a wonderful day and if you ever get a chance look for one of these believe it or not they are still made to some degree today. They are still a fascinating way to view the world and go back in time.. Wishing all my friends a wonderful day. Connie aka Joyful226
