"Le Taxiphote"-this unusual piece was originally given to Mrs. Chandler by Dr. Katherine Chamberlain
of Ann Arbor. Dr. Chamberlain, who taught Chemistry and Physics at Wayne State Univ. was a
photography buff. It measures 16 inches by 12 and is a sophisticated form of the more familiar
steroptican viewer. It also has a drawer full of slides which Dr. Chamberlain took on trips to
Europe in the early 1900's. It was restored and repaired by Arthur J Howard.
