    ~ Hi CW Gang ~

    Have a couple pairs of these. One in red and this one. The red one was mine from my kid days. Not sure of what you really call them as lots of people have different names for them, so I included all the names. These were probably sold in places like Woolworths, or Kresge stores. I remember taking these in the car when we went on trips thinking I could see a million miles away. Fact is, they did not do much.......But when your a kid your Dream Big. LOL. Popular from the late 1960's / very early 1970's, Japan made.

    Thanks for LOOKING // LOVING !!

      antiquerose, Cool.

      I have (or had) a pair, too. As the label on the body suggests, these can be used at sporting events, although really they could be used at any event where you might be seated a bit too far from the action to see well, like the opera.

      Of course, if you want to get fancy, you could go for something like these:
