Three-dimensional imaging is once more in the technological forefront of visual entertainment, however, you may remember back to a simpler era of 3-D, the "View Master". Sawyers, Inc, the company that created the View Master system introduced the public to their 3-D technology at The 1939 World's Fairs held in New York & San Francisco. The Depthography Group will be presenting their 3-D stereoscopic projection show (with 3D polarized glasses) of View Master images from World's Fairs, this time celebrating the 70th anniversary of the opening of the 1939 World's Fair. "Virtually everyone is familiar since childhood with the ubiquitous viewers & circular reels, but rarely do folks get a chance to see the stunning 3-D images projected in large scale before an audience", says Robert Munn. The Fairs that will be featured (in full color) include the following: 1939 New York, 1939 San Francisco, 1958 Brussels, 1962 Seattle, 1964 New York, 1964 New York, Expo '67 Montreal, & a series of images photographed more recently by Mr. Munn of the 1964 New York World's Fair aftermath, ruins, remaining structures, etc. Over 400 views will be featured. They will also be augmenting the show with a selection of rare Black & White "TRU-VUE" 3-D images of The 1939 New York World's Fair.
For those who remember the amazing Belgian Waffles featured at the 1964 NY Fair, the REAL THING will be available at the show, by special arrangement from their friends at "Wafels & Dinges", Belgian waffle specialists!
