Blast From The Past

I went to my dear Aunt's house awhile ago as part of my once in a blue moon visit. While rummaging through her attic for some old albums, I found these...

Argh! The beaten and bruised stereoscopic
viewer 
held together by a tape. Lost one of
the achromatic lenses too!

Films from my 1st birthday party along with a stereoscopic viewer! I've been looking for these for years!  thought that these got washed away by the great flood (Typhoon Ondoy/Ketsana) back in 2009 along with the so many other mementos my Aunt's been protecting like a Fort Knox guard.

I'm not sure if they make these things anymore. Those who played with view-masters back in the 80's can relate to my fascination with stereoscopic viewers. Remember the Mickey Mouse one with Disney cartoon reels? That was my favorite!

I know, right?! *blushing*

Anyhoo, unfortunately, a lot of the films got lost and those that have been saved are partly damaged. I've been trying to call up Bob's Manila but to no avail. I wanna ask them if they could somehow reproduce the damaged films. 

The floods left this one on purpose. Annoying!


That's my 'towerblock' right there.
I miss you Papa! *sniff*

At my maternal grandmother's house

Guess, I just have to research about where to get the viewer fixed and all those heavily watermarked films. *sigh*

THANKS FOR VISITING!
