    The locomotive assembly shot, clearly 4x5 Kodachrome, just leaves me breathless. I'd seen a few of these before, like the Pie Town shots, but the new ones here just continue to make me love Kodachrome even more. There's still nothing else like it.

    I'd like to hear that story, being a musician myself...

    That shot was taken by Jack Delano, a Farm Security Administration photographer. His work is really awesome.

    Let me direct you all to a site I visit every day that has a lot of his images and plenty of other great ones as well, from the civil war up to the 1960s. http://www.shorpy.com

    I got the information from an article I once read in a British Journal of Photography special issueto celebrate the fiftieth aniversary of Kodachrome, twenty odd years ago, and it's always stuck in my mind.

    Yup, someone is going to have to dig deeper.
    WYSIWYG - At least that's my goal.

    A friend just forwarded this my way:
    http://blog.photoshelter.com/2008/08...w-cushman.html

    The Cushman Kodachrome archive dates back to 1938. It's a total joy to look through.
