The viewer has a set of lenses which can be focused. Immediately behind them is a box construction which folds open when using the viewer for normal size stereoscopic cards. Above the lens is a large fixed lens used for viewing large single prints. On the easel is a shelf for large single and large stereoscopic viewers. The easel can be moved vertically and horizontally.
