    Couple of tests of a slide scanner I bought.
    Unfortunately it will have to go back for replacement as the battery won't charge, but in the meantime a couple of photos which I assume are from the late 1950s (judging by the Kodachrome slide mounts).

    View from the cannon up the river. Is this the "fog cannon" that I've seen mentioned recently?

    Scanned a few old transparencies.
    The first will be of the Central Church Womens Guild, probably about 1960.
