following Motion Picture production
One 35 mm Simplex Acme sound projector
complete with speaker and Amplifier. For opera-
tion on 110-125 volt, 60 cycle-alternating current:
together with one generator (110 volts) and gasolene
motor (4 cylinder Ford 1941 engine) for use where
there is no power supply.
This generator has an output capacity of nine
kilowatts, and is capable in itself, apart from
supplying the projector, of carrying a fairly large
extra load such as cinema or theatre lighting: In
fact it would supply all the amenities for a small
cinema or theatre.
The entire machine is of such size and so mounted
that it is mobile, i.e., it can be transported by truck.
The equipment which is stored at Belair Health
Centre has been very little used, and was recently
overhauled and is believed to be in perfect working
order. It may be viewed by arrangement.
Persons interested.are requested to communicate
with the Senior Medical Officer, Kingstown,
St. Vincent, for further information.
