Stereoviews, also called stereocards, were popular from about 1840 to 1930. Two pictures were taken from slightly different locations. Then they were mounted on a stiff card and viewed through a stereoscope with two lenses. Just like the stereo movies made today, the method of photography made the pictures look 3-D. Collector associations include the Magic Lantern Society of the United States & Canada, the National Stereoscopic Association, and photographic groups in many cities.

#1 fireless cookertjbsr 2012-09-05 19:48
I have a Rapid fireless cooker. It appears to be in good condition. It looks like a chest with a flip top lid. It has wooden casters and 3 holes with lids and metal dishes inside. It also has round heat discs. It has a metal exterior that I think is tin. I would like to know the age and value. I would also like to know if I should try to clean the outside metal because it is discolored from age. I would like to put it in my dining room. Thanks
