One-shot #30: London Zoo Penguins, by Sunbeam Tours Ltd.

Being delighted to receive this bizarrely-tall thin paper stereoview a few days prior, I failed at the time to realize that it was a more expensive stereo pair than any of the other 1,000+ that I had received during "Christmas in July". And it was totally worth it, because penguins are the best!

One-shot #26: Kilburn’s Crazy Incline

This dramatic Kilburn stereoview of a train climbing Mt.
