    Wonderful photographs! I would like to see some carbro prints of these originals. That would be amazing.

    Back when I worked at a camera store, we sometimes had orders for copy prints from old photos. We did not have a lab on-site (it was a small store), so we'd send this type of work out. One time a customer brought us a few 5x7 Kodachrome transparencies (family portraits) from the 1940s. They were stunning! I did not want to send them out and have them get lost in the mail or damaged by the lab. I told the customer that they were in possession of a historic artifact, and would be better off taking them to one of the pro photographers in town.

    Excellent advice! I would dearly treasure such a portrait of my parents, who were married in 1941. I do have a BW wedding portrait, but not the negative. I often wonder how many family pictures shot these days will survive the inevitable hard drive crash; I'd imagine few are printed out and even fewer images are properly backed up. Ah well, "a voice that crieth in the wilderness...."

    And that's first generation Kodachrome. It got better...

    Again, these photos show very well why so many of us are sad this film is forever gone. Beautiful color and excellent dark fade resistance (it fades more rapidly than E6 in light fading, however, so some people would make Ektachrome dupes for projection.)

    Women Hairstyle and dresses are awful. They are long , curly and smelly. Look at the prewar style 18-39 era and look at american 39 to 68 era , you will discover the facts.

    WHAT?

    Hairstyles and clothing styles come and go. It's absurd for those in one era to seriously ridicule those of another era.

    And smelly? How the hell would you know that?? These are Kodachromes, not Smell-O-chromes.

    If you curl your hairs like these women at hairdresserwho is using electric heat , you start to smell like fried chicken.
    Look at art deco years and american inspired years , there is 8x10 to 1mp camera difference.
