Back here I mentioned the classic View-Master set The Night Before Christmas which tells the beloved Yuletide Clement Moore poem in "3D." This story was first told View-Master style in 1952 in only one reel (7 photos). In 1958, the story was expanded to what had become the standard 3 reel ("21 Stereo Pictures") set with the charming characters and scenes by View-Master masters Martha Armstrong and Blanding Sloan and photographed by Donald Jim. The packet cover pictured here was the neatly designed version introduced in 1970 and used for the rest of the decade. At this point, View-Master sets were designated under categories such as "Bible Stories," "Showtime" or, in the case of The Night Before Christmas, "Classic Tales." Available for decades, this Christmas View-Master packet is classic, indeed.
