Friday Fun ~ Ttvm

Last week I was listing a vintage View-Master into the shop...

...when I realized I could do this.


I was so enamored with the cute little photos that could be obtained by shooting thru the eye piece of the View Master...I couldn't seem to stop myself.



How fun!

***I've added more pages to the catalog. If interested you can check them out here.

E.L. Rice & Company Wholesale Jewelers 1931 Catalog ~ New Haven Time Keepers

So. I finally started the scanning project first mentioned here. I suspect I may be working on it for a long time to come...plugging away as time permits. I'll do pages in like groups, but in random order, as the spirit moves me. You can view completed pages by clicking on the tab above or here.

The first pages I've scanned are all of various kinds of New Haven clocks....Eight-Day Jeweled Desk and Boudoir, Artlarms, and Artlarms in Colors like the Tat-Too and the Tidy-Tot (fun names). New Haven Tip-Top watches too, as well as Auto Clocks, Pedometers and Timers.

Little Tat-Too here is one of my favorites.
