Slides from the 1930's
7

My then father-in-law took these pictures in Hungary, I don't know what camera or film he used. He died during the war and his wife held on to them. I copied them and made prints for her.

Thanks for looking.

Interesting. What size are the slides and how are they mounted? If the mounts are undestructively openable or not antique/precious you could open one and see if there is text. According to Wikipedia it could be early Kodachrome or Agfacolor.

They were originally  mounted in glass, I opened them and mounted in slides. They were made with Agfa film transparencies. I'm only guessing by his financial status that he used a Leica.

My late father's slides are mounted in about half a dozen different mounts which is a pain with a projector so I'm going to remount them in Gepe mounts. Probably with glass although that's a pain of its own. Already did a few. It pained me to destroy the original Kodachrome cardboard frames but they are hopeless in a projector except perhaps his old Liesegang with a one by one feeding system. Unfortunately it seems bricked. So I'll preserve a few original mounts with less important slides and remount the rest. That includes the Agfacolor all glass mounts whose glue tends to unstick which results in the frames opening up and getting stuck in the projector. I suppose they are similar to the ones you are talking about.

My father had a Contax D, early SLR with prism finder.

The old full glass mounts weren't designed to work with automatic projectors. They work fine with manual projectors.
