Does anyone want one (or more) 35 mm group slide boxes by Logan (and
similar manufacturers)?

These have six columns for slides and four removable dividers for each
column, providing up to 30 compartments for storing 35 mm slides.

There are probably enough dividers to fill out at least the first half of
the boxes that I have.

There is also a Xerox copy of the original blank sheet for marking what's

Most of these are in very clean condition and have served well for storage
for some 35 years (many of them). The newest were bought in the early
1990s, the oldest go back to the mid 1960s. The oldest ones have some
markings on them.

I have a few with single latch and plastic inserts (newest) and plastic
handle, while the bulk have dual latches and a metal bail handle.

Colours are assorted.

If you want any of these, I do need to ask for you to cover shipping (from
Aurora, Ontario, Canada).

Right now, I suspect I have about 12-15 boxes available, with another 12 or
so of the single-latch with assorted inserts (single slide or group)
becoming available sometime...

Each of the larger group boxes seem to hold 600+ cardboard mount slides.
The single-slide boxes (future availability) hold 150 in individual slots,
but three cardboard mount slides fit in a single slot.

This marks my winding up "The Big Scan" where I have (to date) digitized
over 41,000 slides and about 9,000 negatives and prints. I guess I have
about 3,000 slides to go in my collection. I suspect I have inherited
6,000-7,000 from my father and my stepmother's family, but most of those
will not get scanned as no one is interested in them...and my sons and I
are toast.

Here is the longer story**
The updated totals are 50,000 images, 62,000 scans, 69,000 unique files
created, total files created about 119,000 as the images were scanned to
TIF, but an access JPEG was created.
