    Rejected Kodachromes, 1941

    I came across a Kodachrome box with a postage label of August 11, 1941. And we’ve seen in a few posts prior that Joel indeed had shot quite a few Kodachrome slides that year. There was the Death Valley trip and some local Stockton images. So I had high hopes there would be more of…

  • The Death Valley Trip

    When I wrote recently (First Color blog post) about the Kodachrome images taken on a trip through Death Valley all the way to Boulder Dam, I didn’t know what prompted this trip. And a starter image of a Sunday Service on Sunday, April 6, 1941, of Troop 225 (Camarillo) at Red Rock, didn’t help much…

    Checking out the negatives in the last box of 2 1/4″ x 3 1/4″ sheet film marked “ART” and finding a few surprises.

    Third box has following written on it; DARDIS, ART, UOP, Streetcar. The expiration date of this film was set at Sept 1941, so I’m pretty sure all these negatives were shot early 1941. Some signatures of the artist equally have ’41 or 1941 attached. Although only designed for 12 negatives, Joel stashed 21 negatives in…

    Today we continue with the second box of negatives in this 1941 SJC art project. Quite a few pieces from Geo. Akimoto and some beautiful 3d work.

    SJC Art Project, 1941, Box 1

    The second box of 2 1/4″ x 3 1/2″ negatives has ART written on the top. Seems Joel got himself a project photographing artwork at SJC (Stockton Junior College) in 1941. Some artwork is dated “41”, so it’s safe to say that the expiration date on the box, is also the year these images were…

    The second item standing out between all the factory standard negative boxes and paper sleeves, was the E. Leitz coverglass box, containing at one point in time 2″ x 2″ glass. These cover glasses were used to assemble the early 2″ x 2″ slides, before factory standard cardboard or plastic frames. In the early years…
