Solar Eclipse, 1932

Late in August 1932 a group from the Hamil­ton Centre of the Royal Astro­nom­i­cal Society, includ­ing several mem­bers of this Asso­ci­a­tion, travel­led to Acton Vale, Quebec, to obs­erve a total solar eclipse. W. G. Milne, Vice-President and Chief Engineer, N. Slater Com­pany, Hami­lton, oversaw the filming of a few moments of the group's pre­par­a­tions and then the event itself.
