Tru-Vue Inc located in Rock Island, Illinois USA manufactured the Tru Vue viewers from 1931 to 1952. Originally founded in 1931, the company grew dramatically through the 1940s after exhibiting at the 1933 Century of Progress Exposition in Chicago, IL. The original viewers used 35mm filmstrips containing 14 stereo-views, which are pulled through the viewer using a lever. Tru-Vue sold over a million reels of film in 1949 and 1950 saw Tru-Vue introduce their first color filmstrips to compete with Sawyers View-Master. There were over 400 filmstrips made by Tru-Vue, more were available from third-party manufacturers. The Tru-Vue company was bought out by Sawyer View-Master in 1952 mostly for the rights to the Disney licenses held by Tru Vue. Tru Vue Viewer Set with 6 Filmstrips Product Page
