WOW - Great find Paul. I absolutely love those old slides. Maybe it is because I am as old as some of them myself. :ahhh:

Like the collector said, it's amazing how well some of these held up! Color photographs I took in the late 70's & early 80's are fading out even though they were professionally printed & processed and were mounted behind UV film.

What a beautiful and very nearly lost art. Thanks Paul.
