Sunday School Stereoview

From the year 1876! Here is an antique stereograph made by Chicago photographer L.M. Melander. It is called "Sunday School is Out". When the card is placed in an antique stereoscope, the entire scene becomes 3-D. Before television and radio. Before the telephone and the internet. Before the first automobile, airplane and first motorcycle. This was the "entertainment" of its day. God Bless You Today and Every Day!

Young Aimee Semple McPherson

Purportedly, a very early photo post card of a young Aimee Semple McPherson, circa 1918. She would have been touring the USA with her mother in an automobile during this period. Known as "Sister Aimee" she also began the first woman-owned Christian radio station when in Los Angeles. She would go on to be the most well-known evangelist of her era, surpassing the popularity of even the great Billy Sunday. I have a large collection of Aimee Semple McPherson memorabilia in my Wonders of the Bible collection. God Bless You Today ... and Every Day!

Christ on the Cross 3D Lenticular 1950s

1 Peter 3:18 "For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit" Here we have a 3D lenticular circa 1950's showing Jesus on the cross. This piece is approximately 27 x 35 cm in size. The real artistic appreciation should come from the amazing talent and work constructing the physical dioramas that were used as models for the stereo photography. Most were miniature sculptural scenes! For many around the world, religious based 3D lenticulars were always a source of wonder ... for their fascinating dimensional scenes depicting the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. God Bless You Today and Every Day ...

World's Smallest Bible in 1952

Known as "Das Kleinste Buch der Welt", this was the smallest book in the world in 1952. It is only 3.5 x 3.5 mm in size, letterpress printed, thread sewn, hand bound in leather and decorated with a 24k gold Christian cross on the cover. It contains the Lord's Prayer in seven different languages: English, German, French, Spanish, Dutch and Swedish. It is from the Gutenberg museum in Germany, and is part of my Wonders of the Bible collection. God Bless You Today and Every Day!

There were giants in the earth in those days...

Genesis 6:4 “There were giants in the earth in those days...” This stereograph from the late 1800's shows two men standing next to a "giants grave". The card states: "Tomb of a prehistoric race known as the Giant's Grave. The size of the grave in this 3D view card can be fully appreciated only when viewed through a stereoscope. It was enjoyed by many people at my presentations in Texas. Did giants really walk the earth? God Bless You -- Today and Every Day!
