Description

The object is a plastic tray with 33 formed cubby-holes in a three-by-eleven array. Each cubby can contain one film cartridge for the 1360 Photo-Digital Storage System. Each of the cubby-holes has a circular opening on the bottom. Thirty of the cubby-holes are populated with empty storage cartridges, the three empty cubby-holes are across the center. The cartridges are trapped in their cubby-holes with aging masking tape which obscures some of the labeling on the cartridges. Most cartridges appear to have numeric labeling, some cartridges are inserted upside down such that their labeling shows through the holes in the bottom.
