we found 4 they are in small boxes but after examing them more closer on the front of each box there is a picture of the rockettes and a picture of the grand canyron and a picture of las vagas if I remember right. they are very small film strips and we do not have a machine to view them more. I now thing that she might have bought them when she took my father and mother on vaction one year. the fourth one has a picture of a cowboy and says Nevada on it also.
Customer reply replied 3 years ago
we want to know if they are worth anything and how to view them,
