Shared Viewing Microscope

The shared viewing microscope, launched in 1929, was used by students taking lab classes in university science departments and medical schools. Students took turns observing a specimen by handing the microscope from one person to another. The microscope did not come with a mirror; therefore, users had to orient the microscope toward a light source.
