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.

1932 Eclipse #03

This appears to be the Marsh refractor (largest instrument, or might be McMaster scope, one is a Brashear). Smaller one looks like the Bernier scope made by D.B. Marsh for Captain Bernier's northern expeditions. Not sure what the lower instrument is. The viewing boxes show various magnification of the eclipse in progress. This photo was damaged and someone used white-out to try to fix it.

These slides are from the August 31st, 1932 solar eclipse expedition in Acton Vale, Quebec. Eric Golding transferred key frames from this 8mm film  to 35mm slides, likely in the 1980's or early 1990's. According to Eric, the original film was 16mm.. I scanned these (2006-02-11 through 2006-04-06) using a NIKON Coolscan V ED at highest resolution.

Scrapbook 1905

WMacDonald's picture
tn_Scrapbook1905.jpg

Background information on this scrapbook from Randy Attwood (Mississauga):

It was created by J.E. Maybee (see the group picture on page 13.) It was donated to the Toronto Centre in the 1980's by his son. I was the Toronto Centre President back then—I got a call from Mr Maybee who lived in Oakville—he was in his 80's—he had something to donate to the centre. He donated the scrapbook and the telescope that his father took to view the eclipse.
