These slides, from the construction of the Hamilton Centre Observatory, had a date on the slide mount, 1977. I am not sure when actually taken or when developed. Some of the slides appear to have fungus or something bad on them. I cleaned several of the slides very carefully, and they turned out well. I could not fix all of them.
