Some slides are of scenery and popular tourist attracations in these locations but the majority are close-up shots of alpine flowers and plants which Pontecorvo was using for research purposes.


As there was no original order a decision was made to arrange as follows: large boxes of slides, small boxes of slides, large wooden slide chest with 5 drawers, and bundles of loose slides. Each box , drawer or bundle of slides covers a large date span.
