    This brings me great memories. My grandfather worked at MGM from 1933 to 1965, and when my parent got married on May 13, 1945, they had one picture taken with a 4x5 Kodachrome. I have to locate it, but I can assure you that the picture looked like it was taken yesterday.

    They are lovely as is the original website Shorpy's which he does attribute. Somewhere on shorpy's is a family all eating watermelon, it's just the most amazing image. I have very few RSS feeds, shorpy's is one of those.

    I fear that we really don't appreciate what we've lost these days with the shift to digital and in particular the demise of Kodachrome & Polaroid films. I hate thinking about the vast majority of digital imagery today that'll end up in the bit bucket lost forever ...
