Deep Dive

I just finished scanning about 300 slides that I brought home from the storage locker. I finally got a small scanner for slides. Paula’s Dad, Harold took tons of slide over the course of his life time. Until now, I had no way of scanning, let alone viewing any of the slides.

This batch was in a shoe box. Some were loose, some were in boxes received from the film processor. Some of the slides were dated. Most weren’t. So we have slides from 1952-1954, 1968 and 1979. How the 1979 got in the box is beyond me.

The scanner writes the image to a SD card. Once I completed the scan, I copy the images to my computer. Once done, I throw out the original slide.

Many of the slides are from wilderness areas like Mt Lassen. There are some slides from a parade in the 50’s, maybe Long Beach.

Here are some samples:
