These rare old filmstrips are mostly religious or moral in subject matter, but the images on them range from cartoons - to all text - to people, animals and sights and scenes.
Back in the 1940s through the 1960s (and even as late as the 1980s), the filmstrip was a common form of instruction - all the rage. It was a fast and portable way of speaking with a slide show. Some filmstrips even arrived with 33-1/3 vinyl long playing vinyl record albums to accompany the presentation. Most of these were produced by either Cathedral Films, The America Bible Society, Augsburg Publishing, Interlock Publishing or Family Filmstrips.
Although each of these filmstrips is different, all have loads of usable frames for your artwork. We've even heard of some folks cutting the individual frames and mounting them as slides!
Each frame is about the size of a 35mm negative or slide. The actual images are a bit smaller at 25mm wide by about 20mm high. There is a dark leader and trailer on each strip, varying in size from strip to strip.
The average strip is about 54 inches long and contains from 54 to 60 frames.
Filmstrip subject and case may vary. Subject may not match case identification.
