Palliard-Bolex 3-D Movie Studio Contest (1954)

Palliard-Bolex ran an advertisement in 1954 to win a home 3-D movie studio. The ad offered the winner a choice of "Everything you need to take and show your own 3-D color movies with sound or $3,000 cash.

The prize package included a Palliard-Bolex "DeLuxe" H-16 camera with a 3-D lens and three other movie lenses for taking close-up, long-range and ultra-speed regular pictures, camera tripod, turret lever and trigger handle, viewfinder, mash and brack. lights, microphone, new Bell & Howell 16mm 202 Filmosound recorder, projector with 3-D lens and screen with 12 pairs of viewing glasses. The prize package also included $1,000 worth of film and sound processing allowance.

To enter you needed to send in a name for the Dash puppy. We assume this was in conjuction with Dash diswashing detergent, but the advertisement graphic we found is incomplete. We don't know who the winner was, what prize they chose or the winning name of the Dash puppy that was chosen.

Funeral of Abraham Lincoln - Broadway, NY Hearse Procession Stereoview

Lincoln Funeral in New York stereoview front and back.

An April 25, 1865 stereoview of the Funeral of Abraham Lincoln Broadway NY Procession Hearse Anthony Stereoview sold for a best offer after being listed for $525.

The streroview shows the Catafalque passing up Broadway.After lying in state for a day inside City Hall, Lincoln's body was carried up Broadway in an enormous procession.

On the afternoon of April 25, 1865, Lincoln's funeral procession left City Hall.

After leaving City Hall, the procession moved slowly up Broadway to Union Square. It was the largest public gathering New York City had ever seen.

An honor guard from New York's 7th Regiment marched beside the enormous hearse which had been built for the occasion. Leading the procession were a number of other regiments, often accompanied by their bands, which played slow dirges.

As enormous crowds lined the sidewalks and watched from every vantage point, Lincoln's funeral procession moved up Broadway with storefronts were decorated for the occasion. Even Barnum's Museum was decorated with black and white rosettes and mourning banners.

A firehouse just off Broadway displayed a banner reading, "The assassin's stroke but makes the fraternal bond the stronger."

The entire city followed particular rules of mourning which had been printed in the newspapers. Ships in the harbor were directed to fly their colors at half-mast. All horses and carriages not in the procession were to be taken off the streets. Church bells would toll during the procession. And all men, whether in the procession or not, were requested to wear "the regular badge of mourning on the left arm."

Four hours were allotted for the procession to move to Union Square. During that time perhaps as many as 300,000 people saw Lincoln's coffin as it was carried up Broadway.
