As we get closer to the reveal of the Not Roswell Slides, Gilles Fernandez posted a note on the last my posting which wasn’t relevant to the topic but that was interesting. Apparently he, and his team of investigators who have been working quietly behind the scenes, have made one discovery that is of importance. Fernandez posted one of the slides to his blog (which is normally written in French but this was in English) that came from the stash of Hilda Blair Ray and showed a scene France. All of this can be seen at:
Although they just show the picture, they have identified the cars on the street and they weren’t produced until the mid-to-late 1950s. That would seem to suggest that slide was not taken in the late 1940s but maybe as much as ten years later.
Fernandez wrote, “Yes, As [sic] pointed out in our previous article devoted to the Roswell Slides, a close examination by members of our team revealed that French cars depicted in this slide were produced from 1958 [though it seems one was available in 1956]. So, if this slide had the mount expected from a 1941 to 1949 scene, it would prove that the type of mount with only ‘Kodachrome’ printed two times is NOT a forensic evidence to establish that what is depicted is from the 1941 – 1949 period expected for this type of mount.”
This, they say, shows that the cardboard slide sleeve that has been claimed to have been used only from 1941 to 1949 was actually used much longer.
Is this discovery of overwhelming importance?
Well, not so much. It does expand the time frame for the use of that specific slide sleeve so it is not as limited as had been suggested.
But there is one problem. They reproduce the scene but they don’t reproduce the slide sleeve along with it. It could be argued that while this is one of Hilda Ray’s slide, the sleeve doesn’t match, precisely those from 1941 to 1949. It would seem that this is an oversight. I have quickly scanned the blog but haven’t found the picture printed with the slide sleeve visible to compare it with those from 1941 to 1949.
We are now very close to the big reveal and many of our questions should be answered then. We all have provided those with the Not Roswell Slides all with plenty of notice of what we would like to see in the way of proof. Once the show has been performed, we can then begin a complete analysis of the data. Providing all the promised information is released.
