Stereoscope Entertainment

A stereoscope is a device for viewing a pair of separate images, depicting left-eye and right-eye views with the same scene, as a single three-dimensional image. Most of us have fond memories of experiencing a stereoscope as a ViewMaster. This particular stereoscope is classified as a “Holmes” model, which was the most common model starting from the mid-19th to the mid-20th centuries.

Eventually the View-Master took over as the must-have of stereoscopes, which had rotating cardboard discs holding the image pairs, popular for “virtual tourism” and eventually as a child’s toy.

Come see this and many other fascinating artifacts from Boerne’s past here at the Kuhlman-King historical complex! We are open every second Saturday from 12-3 pm or contact us to set up a private tour.
