Just came back from the postcard show in Glendale, California. A dealer friend of mine had put an item aside for me and I was looking forward to picking it up. It's a small viewer from the Disneyland Hotel Camera shop.
It's approximately 2" long, 7/8" by 1" at the image end and 1/2" square at the viewer end. It has an orange card approximately 3" by 4-1/4" attached to it with a small chain. It is stamped "Disneyland Hotel Camera Shop" and someone has penciled "1962 Trip" on the front.
The back has a space for a return address, destination address and stamp box making it in my collection a postcard.
If anyone has never tried to take a picture through one of these things, let me tell you it's quite a challenge. What make this interesting is the view of the Hotel. The signage says "Hotel Disneyland" not "Disneyland Hotel". Also the building seems to be narrower.
I tried to match it up with an image of the Hotel from my collection and came up with this one. Although taken at a different angle, you can see the three palm trees to the left of the elevator shaft. I was thinking, maybe, a little pre-Photoshop manipulation to make it fit into the viewer? What do you think?
