These two Bausch & Lomb Slide Trays (made in Rochester, N.Y.) contain a mix of slides from the 1950s to 1960s. The subjects vary and are mostly from Southern California sightseeing trips; my favorites being the ship images. The trays and box lids are numbered from 1-40 for easy classification. There is some writing on some of the numbered lines and subject lines.

Here is an overview of the slide type and contents:

Slides are dated 1958-1961 with some manufactured slides titled "Golden West" with Wayfarer's Chapel, Portuguese Bend, CA; images of the process of building a home; rock formations; ships in San diego Bay - with an image of a wrecked pleasure boat and a rescue barge; Balboa Park; Wind ansea Beach (La Jolla, CA), Whittier Elementary School (Whittier, CA); Alcazar Gardens, Balboa Park; a flamingo; Navy air base, etc.

Easymount slides (1" x 1.5" image) and Ektachrome slides (1" x 1.25" image) with San Diego 1958 and Southern California subjects.

Kodachrome Transparency (7/8" x 1.25" image) and Anscochrome Transparency (7/8" x 1.25" image)

Gemounts 36 (3/8" x 3/8")

These slides would be great for an art project or could even be fun to have them reproduced as digital or printed images. Some kind of use in light art would be interesting. Each box measures approx. 9.5" x 2.625" x 2.25".
