    New York pictures taken on Kodachrome from 1940's.

    Here is a link I found of some pictures taken by a amature photographer of NY in 1940-42. They were taken on Kodachrome. I'm not sure this is the right place to post this link, but if not please repost it. Thanks. Ric.

    The personal attire and general level of decorum then (early 1940s) cause shame to manifest for today's standards. Sorry, truth is truth. - David Lyga

    Those were the days. Back then, people shot film, men wore hats and we had lead in our gas. I wasn't around then, so I'm just being romantic about the 40s. Thanks for the link. Really enjoyed it!

    I promised myself I wouldn't miss Kodachrome, but then you showed me this.
    f/22 and be there.

    Glad you liked the pics.

    It is always nice when members write back to say they liked the pics. The thing is that those pics are 70 years old. The color is not as sharp as if they were taken today, that could be due to improvement is todays films, but being slides they are in a format that can be viewed today with a scanner or a slide projector. I hope someday people will be seeing digital pictures that are 70 years old and that their computer has a CD drive. By then these pictures will be 140 years old and all you will need to view them is a light table. Even if you have switched to that other medium, a few slides of the family won't hurt. Ric.
