Chicken of the Sea Pirate Ship

Another unusual image from the personal Viewmaster reel is this shot of the Pirate ship restaurant. I like the angle and the way the ship takes up the image with the black sides and red top and bottom. Also there are a lot of people on the boat, it must have been lunch time.

For Tim at Vintage Disneyland Tickets, the reels look like regular viewmaster reels but are printed in green. Sawyers sold the mounts, a camera and photo splitter. The camera uses 35mm film to take the images, but the images must be cut and mounted into the reel. Many of the nude girl reels are home made in the same way.

This one looks like you would get a good 3-D effect! A lot of amateur 3-D photographers forget to include foreground elements, which really make a scene "pop".

Great shot of the pirate ship matterhorn. I can't put my finger on why, but for some reason this particular shot is invoking more memories of spending hours just playing on that ship as a kid, than other shots I've seen recently, or the stuff in my own collection. Anyway, from playing on it as a kid, to hanging out in the shady cove in the back as an adult, to the way the Skull Rock area looked at night... man! it's sorely missed.
