Elmo slide projector
made in Japan 1960
Looking like a cross between a space ship and a mix master- this slide projector is the quintessential expression of 60s machine engineering.
Elmo- or the ‘Electricity Light Machine Organisation’ [a very futuristic name, especially when said in a robotic voice] was founded in 1921 and made its first projector in 1936. They are still in production today.
This slide projector is pristine- it comes in a plastic case and its original box, has a working bulb and has been tested and tagged. It has a bakelite switch and plug [adding considerably to its charm] – and a single feed slide changer. The body of the projector slides open to accept the slide changer- it’s quite simply beautifully engineered and made.
Display the projector as a funky 60s object- or use it to show slides of the moon landing- it’s for sale: $AUD125
