In celebration of the National Park Service Centennial in 2016, this exhibit showcases one object from the Lincoln Home National Historic Site.
To operate, cards containing identical photographs pasted side-by-side were placed inside on holders. The viewer looked through the eye holes at the image which took on a three-dimensional appearance, and turned the knob to see the next image. This very expensive toy made the Lincoln boys the envy of the neighborhood.
