The View-Master was first developed in the United States by Sawyers Inc, a company that specialised in scenic photographs, and was launched at the New York World's Fair in 1938.

Physical description

Rectangular card printed in colour to which is attached a clear plastic circular compartment containing three card discs with fourteen colour slides set around each outside edge. The front of the card has a photographic image of the characters Ratty, Toad and Mole and the title of the slide set and the back is printed with a story, a list of other titles in the series and a photograph of a small girl and boy using View-Masters.
