World's Fair - Paris 1900
If you love an image (whether it's yours or someone else's) and want to make sure others get a chance to see it, you can “feature” it by choosing the “Spotlight” button.
When an image is Spotlighted, it receives enhanced visibility in premium spots throughout the site. Spotlighted images are rotated through these higher-visibility positions to ensure the best opportunity for the images to be seen by JPG users.
If you see a great photo that would make a perfect entry for one of our Shoot Out photo contests but it was uploaded by another user, now you can enter that photo in the contest and, if it wins, you get to share in the contest winnings.
Like a photo editor, if you've got an eye for great work, find it and submit it to a contest. If it wins, since you staked the entry fee, you'll take home part of the prize (the rest, of course, goes to the member who shot the image).

This has been in our family for a long time. It's now past down to my son.
I remember this as a kid but didn't think to ask about its history. Now my mom is gone and my father has no memory so I guess we'll never know.
The insignia on the top says "Exposition Universelle Internationale. Paris 1900.
It looks like one of the original 3D view masters and has a number of picture cards from various places. The card shown here is of someplace in portugal.
Each card has 2 identical pictures. When you look through the lenses it is 3D, though I'm not sure how.
