    Yep, slide says Sonoita on it.

    Here are a few from the Natoma #6 Dredge near Folsom, CA taken July, 1959.

    This might help you out some. Vista Quest FS-503 Digital film & slide scanner. Uses a SD card, or you can scan into photo Shop. They're easy to find for under $25. I like being able to sit in front of the TV or the big plus! The ability to scan a copy of film or slides the owner doesn't want to give away or sell! I mickey moused a holder for 110 film, does a nice job. One hint, buy two or three cans of canned air for computers!!! You'll need it!!

    BTW, excellent job doing what you're doing now!!

    Nice find and thanks sharing them!

    I have a question about bucket dredges. They all seem to float. Do they dig out a pond to get started? Thanks

    Yes they dug a pond. Sometimes the earlier ponds were dug using mules and a "Fresno" or other type scraper.
