Streetcar at Third and Main

Streetcar circa 1930

Slide bought on eBay. This is from 1938, according to a caption on a reproduction of this image at the Hobart Historical Society.

I didn't know you couldn't just slap a slide onto your scanner and scan it, until I tried it and got a very disappointing result. So I had to look it up, and found that if I didn't want to shell out big bucks for a Transparent Media Adapter, I could do what this guy says and make a 3-D triangle from bright white paper. So I did. You see the result above. I don't know if a Transparent Media Adapter would do any better.
