They’re just a few of the many companies in the 1920s & ’30s whose factories and products were documented in 3D for use with the Stereo-Indupor viewer.

In addition to researching, organizing, studying, photographing, comparing, and appreciating the design, longevity, and applied uses of mid-century stereo viewers, I spend time photographing cloud formations and being a Googler.
