Brazil, Montevideo and Falkland Islands

Reference Code: GBR/0115/RCS/Marnham B

Scope and Contents

Contains slides mainly in thick plastic frames marked 'Photopia', made in Germany, dark grey with a red top. The exceptions are numbers 72-75 in Kodachrome cardboard frames which link up with C and numbers 37-38 and 99-103 which are in silver Sytec frames. Some of the frames have brief captions pencilled on them, but these are very hard to read. Others have labels stuck on. A roughly written numbered list was in the original box. The list which follows has been derived from these sources. Number 76 is missing.
