    Kodachrome: Images made before WWII

    These are some of the earliest 35mm Kodachrome images, which were recently scanned and not digitally enhanced. Enjoy!

    Great, thanks for posting. I particularly like the rural store shot.
    WYSIWYG - At least that's my goal.

    Amazing, they look like they were taking yesterday. How surreal.

    I love these images, even went out to Pie Town and photographed a man who appeared in one the old shots as a kid. But we need to be shooting these kinds of images now. This film should not pass on as a bunch of snaps looking like lens tests, pictures of cats and or rose bushes.

    The Kodachrome I am shooting now is incredibly vibrant and rich, just like the good old days...There will be time to truly reminisce when the film is actually gone.

    Kodachrome 25, Leica MP-3, 50mm 1.4 Summilux aspheric, 2008.

    Awesome images. Just can't beat Kodachrome! A blast from the past.

    Like polished jewels! As beautiful as the day the box of slides was opened and the shooter held one up to the light for a first look.

    thanks, this made my day.

    Thanks Karl, a wonderful look of an America that has gone forever, we forget that life in those days went on in colour , I notice some of the slides have the round corners that the Kodachrome cardboard mounts had, I had all but forgotten about these.

    I just ordered 24 rolls of Kodachrome 64. I know I have to ship it back to the US for processing, but all the time and hassle will be worth it when I open one of the boxes of slides. I has been a long time since I have seen Kodachrome color, but much longer.

    I guess compared to $5 a roll in 1938, which was a half a weeks wages, Kodachrome is a bargain. The equivalent today would be a price of about $250 per roll.

    I would love to get my hands on some Kodachrome 25, but I guess those days are over...
