It had three little trays, a couple of Tri-Chem-Paks a ruby lamp and
a couple of film clips.
I don't think I had any film clips until much later when I was able
to develop film in a tank and use film clips to dry it. (Sometimes
it dried nicely, other times it just curled in a nasty way. Adding
weight helped, and one could do that because the clips punched
through the film, holding it with a nice grip. Those punch areas had
to be cut off before the film was rolled-up or cut for printing.
All this evolved, for me, over a 10-20 year span. I still have some
of the film tanks, but the trays are long gone.
There was once, on this forum, a discussion about tank brands. I
liked the Nikor (not sure about spelling) best but as I recall most
of the comments about that brand said they leaked. Never had that
problem, and I enjoyed the capability of putting the tank into a
water bath (between flips or agitation, whatever was popular any
given week) to hold the temperature.
I finally developed the dexterity to load two rolls into the tank at
once, back to back, and it worked for me.
Wow, you had film clips and a real safelight?
