All told, I scanned 1,872 slides from Christmastime 1949 in Chicago to the summer of 1991 at the end of the Marion-Bermuda Cruising Yacht Race.
As I emptied each carousel of these slides I kept them in the closet in our spare bedroom so that I could offer them all together on Freecycle when I finished.
They were all claimed by one person within two hours of my post and will be picked up this afternoon. Now all of these slides, minus two carousels worth that I gave to my step-brother, have been placed in closed binders and sit safely on a shelf in that same closet in our spare room.
Next project - rescuing photos from the acid sandwiches of magnetic photo albums. Stay tuned!
