DAVE FISHER SLIDE COLLECTION

Following the sorting out of the late Dave Fisher’s vast collection of slides, those of railway or other transport interest have been sent away for professional scanning, which in itself will be a lengthy process before return in due course in electronic format, subject to suitability.

As a result several transparency storage cases (200 & 350 capacity) have become surplus to requirements together with a few slide projector bulbs and magazines. Before disposal these items are hereby offered to members free of charge on application. Please contact Howard at:
