Object Description
This is a 16mm film strip of a body of water. There is a label taped to the film that identifies it as "---os pool." The first three letters are ambigious. The film has been tied into a loop and secured with a ribbon this has put a considerable kink in the film.
Origin
Doctor John N Nicholson was a Greek immigrant doctor who practiced in the Chicago area for 50 years and was well known member of the Greek-American community. Nicholson created the movie Present Day Greece and Its Mediterranean Islands from 1946-1951. It is a three hour long documentary meant to educate Americans about Greece and the Greek-American identity in order to dispel negative stereotypes. There is no evidence that this film strip was in the documentary. There is no information on where or when the film was shot. The note could be refering to the Delos Pool in Greece but that is unsubstantiated.
