    I purchased a set of ten training transparencies recently and scanned the first one. Perhaps these are very familiar to everyone, but I think they are really quite nice. I'd be happy to scan them all and make the image available here, or elsewhere. The slides are dated October 1957. Below the image, you'll find a link to the full size/high resolution scan - super sized.

    Here is a link to the full size scan, high resolution. Just be sure to click on it again for the full size version.

    OK, here is the complete set, scanned, with some color correction, loaded up to Flickr, and available in various sizes. Enjoy.

    Very cool find!

    If you decide to scan all of them, do it at a fairly high resolution (at least 300 dpi) and use a white background instead of the green one, which causes the colors to be distorted.

    Getting access to obscure stuff like this is why I love the internet.

    They are all in the set, and I did use a white background, and the set in Flickr is scanned at 300 dpi.

    The green border is how they transparencies came, taped on to a thick green plastic border.
