What you'll learn in this unique class:

Midcentury Stereopanorama with Eric Drysdale: Look and see the 1950s in 3-D!

For the last 20 years, writer and comedian Eric Drysdale has been collecting photographs from the 1950s taken by amateurs with the Stereo Realist 3-dimensional camera system. This remarkable technology was something like the ‘50s version of virtual reality, pairing Kodak’s Kodachrome film with a precision viewer to deliver uncannily realistic, full-color, three-dimensional images. Think of it as an IMAX View-Master.

During the Stereo Realist's heyday in the early 1950s, the mass-market 3-D camera was being used in hundreds of thousands of American households —but the technology has been largely forgotten.

Eric has narrowed his collection of tens of thousands of these amazing images to about 150 of the best, and you’ll see them the way they were meant to be seen - in fully-restored high-quality vintage stereoscopic viewers.

From the deck of the Queen Elizabeth II to the hair salon of a Dallas department store, From the mermaid springs of the Weeki Wachee to the paneled basements of Wisconsin — this intimate salon will give you 90 minutes in the 1950s, the closest to time travel you’re likely to get.
School Notes: OUTSIDE FOOD & DRINKS ARE NOT ALLOWED. QED has coffee, tea, soda, beer & wine plus snacks and pre-made wraps and sandwiches available.

Refund Policy
We require at least seven (7) days' notice before a class in order to issue a refund and there are no transfers to future classes allowed. We're a small operation and purchase our own supplies and keep classes extremely affordable, so we have to operate this way just to stay in business.

But, all is not lost, tickets are transferable meaning we will allow anyone to take your place in class, so check around with your friends to see if someone else would like your spot.

In case of bad weather, classes WILL always take place unless the subway system is closed down. If you have issues traveling, please keep this in mind when you purchase your ticket. If we do cancel for weather or an emergency, we will try to reschedule the class on the same day of the week at the same scheduled time as soon as possible. If you cannot make the rescheduled date, we will refund you the price of your seat.
