  • Kodachrome, March 28, 1944

    Kodachrome, March 28, 1944

    On March 28, 1944, the Red Army captured Nikolaev, the main shipbuilding center of the Black Sea in southern Ukraine. Same day the British MP’s voted to give women teachers the same pay as men. When I found a Kodachrome box with a March 28, 1944 date, my hopes were high there would be slides […]

    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 […]

One look at the photography item tables, and it became immediately clear that this was a […]
