I guess the slide or negative must've been in some sort of sleeve for the last 60 or so years and gotten the odd bubbles.  Considering its age, it's incredibly clear - square format film too - 2¼"?

 
Saturday night party time:

What I'm seeing is possibly a case of the slide being scanned while still in a mylar sleeve, but in the old days of scanning, we'd cut the slide out of its mount and attach it to a drum for scanning, often suspending it in oil to keep air out from between the slide and drum. Then the whole thing is wrapped in mylar, more oil, then sealed all around to keep the oil from leaking out as the drum spins. It was really easy for the slide to pull away a little and allow an air bubble in, which you wouldn't realize until the scan was done and you got a look at the result. It was sad to see and depending on how important the scan was, we'd try to photoshop the bubbles out rather than rescan (a half-hour process of mounting and cleaning and scanning and unmounting and cleaning again).

But come to think of it, I see Newtons rings too which is what happens when you don't use oil, but have the slide touching another surface (scanner drum or ...a mylar sleeve laid on a flatbed scanner glass). Modern flatbed scanners hold the slides up away from the glass, but they used to always try to sandwich it. That would leave a thin layer of air (1 molecule) that would refract light and cause a wicked pattern.

According to the site I found it on, it's a scan from a Kodachrome slide (maybe actually Ektachrome?).  The rings may be from a sleeve or just general funk on the old slide.  It does look like there's a reflection in the TV though.

I rate the music here on RP based on the artistic, spiritual, social and commercial impact of the song...if any and all apply. I tend to rate music higher than the average. I'm an avid music lover!

I'm sure it was a print, scanned thru a mylar sleeve, but I keep seeing what look like bubbles in an oil-mounted slide. And Newton's Rings. Also a cool TV.

I think I had a very similar side table. The TV installed in the wall is cool and funky. The wall itself is wild it looks like it's trying to be rainbow eucalyptus.
