Multiple Reel Sets
This set was made in conjunction with an exhibition by the same name, and features the images of Frances Naylor made by her father during her amazing period of levitation. Read below for a description of the exhibition:
Frances Naylor's legs were amputated when she was only two years old due to a circulatory problem. But when she was thirteen Frances began having powerful dreams that she could walk. One morning after such a dream, she woke to find she had the ability to levitate.
Her mother was a devoutly religious woman and forbade Frances from displaying this ability outside. Her father was fascinated however, and made a number of stereo photographs of his daughter as she floated about their house.
Just as mysteriously as it began, the ability to levitate was lost about a
month later, and Frances sunk into a deep depression. She was later
institutionalized and died later of pneumonia. The photographs which her father
made remain as the only record of this amazing occurrence.

This 2 reel turkey View-Master was a promotion for "the Turkey Store" which contains a viewer and 2 reels which show various entrées that can be made with turkey meat. The reels are a bit of a "turkey" because unlike most View-Master reels they are not 3D, but that doesn't hurt the collector or for enthusiast of good food.
Collectors will be interested to know that the viewer that comes with the set is the earlier US made Tyco version, not the currently produced View-Master viewer. The viewer is black. More info and images.
