The apparatus used to convert the film to slides. It says "Camtech" on the film reel on the right, the name of a local Hamilton-based photography company. You can almost read the text on the film frames.

RASC Hamilton Centre—1932 Eclipse
Scanned by Colin Haig
 
These slides are from the August 31st, 1932 solar eclipse expedition in Acton Vale, Quebec. There was an 8mm film that somebody (no idea who) transferred key frames to 35mm slides. I am not sure when actually that transfer was done or when the slides were developed. I scanned these (2006-02-11 through 2006-04-06) using a NIKON Coolscan V ED at highest resolution.
