For three days this spring, Matt Felsen, a student at Parsons Design + Technology will set up classic binocular viewers in different parts of the city. Instead of a present day view, the viewers by Tower Optical Co., a partner in Felson’s masters thesis project “Lost Landmarks,” will show historic photographs of the same location.

Here’s a look at what the devices look like inside:
