Scanned with Nikon Coolscan V ED.

These slides, from the construction of the Hamilton Centre Observatory, had a date on the slide mount, "1979 07 Marsh." I am not sure when actually taken or when developed. Abbreviations: LVP - written on the slide, I think they are the initials of the photographer. LVP = Leslie V. Powis.
