Riverside Funeral, 1978


Most slides I get are dull.  There's only so many times you can see a picture of Fred Smith looking at a church before you grow weary.

However, there's are sometimes quirky slides, and several of you have seen the Slide Guy calendar.

Rarely, there are a batch of truly beautiful slides, and I recently scanned a few. From a Mr KH Burrell, Sun City, Arizona, this one dates from 1978, but could be from anytime in the past few millennia. The only clue on the slide was the world funeral, and there doe appear to be a funeral pyre at the centre.  So, on the Ganges ?

But, whatever the subject, let's admire the craft and skill of Mr Burrell.

Bonus - Good Aim
