A Photo From the Vintage Key Chain Photo Viewer - Crecenciana Aurora Matus Villatoro

In a previous post, I shared the exciting news that there were three key chain photo viewers included in the pretty vintage box I found at my mom's house.

Today, I'm sharing the photo from one of the photo viewers with you. I tried to take a photo of the picture inside the photo viewer using my cell phone and it worked!

I held the photo viewer up to the light and then put my cell phone camera lens next to the viewer as if I were holding it up to my eye. I then took photos of what my cell phone saw.

Here's one of the photos my cell phone took:

This doesn't look exactly like what I saw when I held the viewer up to my eye though. Here's a cropped version to get just a single image instead of the kaleidoscope effect in the cell phone photo.

I discovered that the white end of the viewer can be removed and the picture can be removed as well. These pictures actually look like slides.

I was able to scan two of the slides using my flat bed scanner. The third slide didn't come out easily like the other two, and I don't want to harm it, so I need to figure out a way to remove it without damaging it.

Here's the same image above after I scanned it with my flat bed scanner. I also cleaned the scanned image up a bit using Photoshop.

This looks to me like Crecenciana Aurora Matus Villatoro. Unfortunately, I don't know when or where this picture was taken. It could be in Brazil. She immigrated to Brazil from Mexico. My mom told me she loved dogs.

I'll share the second photo viewer picture with you in an upcoming post.

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. I was expecting some commercial photo - not one of family. What a great find!

  2. I have one of my parents from when they visited me at camp one summer. Somehow the hotel where they were staying was making them for guests. I still keep it in my top drawer.

  3. How fun to have such a unique treasure in addition to a photo of her. So awesome!

    1. Thank you Michelle! It really is an interesting treasure.
