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: JMH - written on the slide, likely the photographer. John Hudak is likely the photographer according to Roger Hill.
