Great sharp clear photos from WW II. Check out the clothes, hair styles.

Very high quality photos from the 1940s

4x5 Kodachromes

Great sharp clear photos from WW II. Check out the clothes, hair styles.

Just interesting photos.

Back in the mid '70s someone was working at Hellers Camera in Bethesda MD and had a reference book with a color photo of the battleship Pennsylvania out in the Pacific, around 1944. The quality of the photo made it clear that it was shot with a large format camera, which is puzzling since most didn’t think Kodachrome (the only modern color film of time in the US ) was available in sheet films. An old Kodak hand (and WWII vet and radioman in Europe) revealed that they did have sheet Kodachrome, and that there was only one machine to process the film, located in Rochester .

Cool stuff. We take a LOT of photos here, all the tropical and underwater stuff, but I don't think we can yet match the resolution of the old large format analog photography with todays digitals.

Thanks for posting that.
