Day 2.094: History lessons
After we found Dad's old slides a week or so ago and I photographed a couple using my own camera and a battery-powered hand-held slide viewer (this was one of them), he was persuaded to buy a slide scanner to start to digitise his collection (something over 1400 slides plus some of his father's and then maybe some print-film negatives). The scanner arrived at the end of last week, but I helped to get it going today and got some pretty satisfactory results. We've been scanning pictures from 1962 so far - a wonderful glimpse into the past enabled by the technology of today.
