Kodachrome 35mm Slides - 1960s Street Scenes with Vintage cars

Kodachrome Slide of the day - looking at slides

I just love this photo. It is what I do several times a day. I own several different slide and photo viewers but my aging eyes seem to work best with holding them up to a light source with a magnifying glass. I don't know the location of this shot but I'm going to guess Italy. if you recognize the building, I would love to know what it is.

1961 Little Boy Smoking Winston cigarettes with Granny

When I buy a box lot of slides from an estate auction, I usually have no clue what I am going to find and get really excited when an unusual or offbeat photo shows up. This slide of a little boy imitating his grandmother smoking a cigarette is my cool find for the day. In today's society a photo like this posted to Facebook would cause quite an uproar and comments from friends with parenting advice.

Kodachrome Display at St Patrick TTC Subway Station Toronto

Last month I was thrilled to come across this wonderful public installation of Kodachrome at St Patrick Subway station in Toronto. The display was part of the Scotiabank Contact Photography Festival and featured photographs taken by Chris Lund, a self-taught photographer who worked for the National Film Board of Canada.
