Stereo Royal Group Viewer

This stereo group viewer was made by a company named Stereocraft, established at 296 Pearl St. in New York City. It's basically a 3-D stereo projector with its own little screen. You need the Polaroid polarized glasses in order to view the stereo effect. I got it quite some time ago at a camera show. Had never seen one before and haven't seen one since (not saying it's rare though).

From left to right, you can see:
- the light bulb housing;
- the slide carriage;
- the power switch at the top, the lens housing in the middle (interocular adjustment is possible by moving the right lens), and the focusing lever at the bottom;
- a pair of polarized glasses;
- two slide compartments (one at the top and one at the bottom) and the power cord;
- the mirror that projects the stereo image back onto the viewing screen.
