Le Polyphopte

Le Polyphote
Le Polyphote viewer
The Polyphote included two trays of slides. One set of 6 x 13 slides were long distance shots of boring scenery, and severely water damaged. Rarely will I literally throw away an old stereo slde, but these slides were not viewable, and carried no labeling or visual information of interest. They went in the trash. The second group of 14, presented below, are the opposite. As with most amateur photographers, the results are variable, but they tell an interesting story. This was an expedition to recover tanks. The slides are unlabelled. Lacking a better idea, they would appear to have been shot possibly in someplace like Morocco. During the war, or after? I'm not sufficiently knowledgeable to say. Although presented here for easier viewing, these are 45 x 107 slides mounted in metal masks.
