2009/365/296 Got My Reels!

To make my recently acquired Viewmaster complete, I picked up some vintage reels on eBay.

What a hoot these are! Actually the depth effects are rather impressive in their technicolor glory, and all almost matched by some of the cheesy shots – e.g. a bit gratuitous with shots of Indians in full head-dress hanging around the South Rim (captions boast "5 Indian Tribes Live in the Area!").

Curiously the set for the North Rim of the Grand Canyon includes a disc with photos from Havaupai, which I can vouch is on the South Rim.
