Every few months I get a package from Ernest Utermark in my post office box. He is a collage artist and a collector of more or less the same stuff as I collect. In these packages are all kind of things that usually make me very happy. Like these mini slides that you got if you(r mother) bought for 12.50 guilders at Vivo, a Dutch chain of supermarkets.
Of course you need a special viewer to watch these mini slides, but I this viewer was not in the package. To see what can be made visible, I made a 600dpi scan of one of these things:

There is no other information on the record or the sleeve than that this flexi was made by Sonopresse Rotterdam.
