Hanimex ‘Mini’ folding slide projector

ClosedHanimex ‘Mini’ folding slide projector
made in Sydney, Australia c.1950s

This neat little projector folds out to show slides in both 16mm and 35mm slide formats. It has a P-Rokkor 2.5/40mm lens and uses a 75watt lamp; I have it on good authority that replacement lamps are still available. The projector works a treat – it’s been checked over by an electrician – and has an ‘automatic’ slide feed to allow you to load two slides at a time [!!] It comes in its original box, which sadly has been mended with masking tape.

Perfect for your next slide night or to add to your burgeoning Hanimex collection. I am reluctantly parting this projector- it’s a beautiful as well as a functional object.

Fafix slide projector

Fafix slide projector
made in Germany, c.1950s

This is a beautiful bakelite slide projector. I love the funky “Z” logo! –which is an unusual choice for a company called Fafix. The projector wants to be out on display: with its outer case removed, it’s like looking at a cross-section of a simple 50s machine.

The projector is missing its two-pronged electrical cable, so I haven’t been able to test it, but these are easily picked up. It has a 50 watt lamp and a detachable slide mount [not seen in images.]It comes with its original instruction booklet, and someone along its life has made it a nice timber box.

This projector ticks all the boxes for me: it’s simply constructed, photographic, and made of bakelite.     For sale: $AUD75

Retro Italian souvenir images

This collection was inspired after I visited Italy. It comprises a c.1960s Venice guidebook, 60s postcards in book form from Venice, Roma and Florence and 60s souvenir film slides from Rome and the Vatican.

The souvenir guide book is in excellent condition and is quite funny to read with its mangled English. The souvenir postcard books have never been used and are still complete – the old retro photographs are very stage-managed and have been colour-touched in that delightful 60s era style.

The souvenir slides have never been opened, and I expect they will have that lovely rosy patina of all old slides. They could be viewed using the Haminex slide viewers, posted below!  For sale: $AUD55
