These are old reel-to-reel cannisters. These two are empty, but i have another one which has the film in it and it's labled 1926 aviation. I'd love to see what's on them, but i don't know anyone w/ the old equipment to watch it. any suggestions?

    Film size is measured in millimetres, standard movie film was 35mm, then 16mm & 8mm.

    Very Cool, I discovered an old Movie projector from 1912 hand cranked (i actually just posted, but I also found two tins, with full reels of film in them,same make as projector i have, in Pristine condition, i was looming at them through lighting and one of mine is a band playing at a festival, pretty cool stuff. Hope You find out what is on them, SJ
