Coin operated stereo viewers

American, British, French or German? We want to know about it.

The Stereoscope Viewer

Whilst visiting The Grange Musical Museum's Fairground Organ Day near Diss, Norfolk on Sunday I spotted this viewer. It was on top of a player piano so difficult to photograph.

Instruction card aside, I wonder if this was originally a domestic, rather than a coin-operated, viewer. Did you notice where the slot was located?

Sorry no, the top of the piano was at head height so I could not see the top of the viewer at all. They were very busy with the fairground organs so I couldn't find anyone to get it down. I'm hoping to go back to the museum in November, it will be less busy then, and will ask if they can get it down for me to get a better look at it and get some photos.

I have a few of this type. I believe they may have been made in South Australia. There again, I may be wrong. 😂
