  • Another Time Machine: More 1930s/1940s Color Photos

    Posted by Jonathan on May 11th, 2004 (All posts by )

    A slide show of depression-era Kodachromes made by government-sponsored photographers appears in the NYT Sunday magazine. Like the images in the Charles W. Cushman Photograph Collection, to which I linked in a previous post, the NYT images are remarkable for showing in color scenes we are accustomed to seeing only in monochrome.

    UPDATE: The complete photo collection at the Library of Congress is here.

      Have you ever seen the Prokudin-Gorskii collection? Color images from the Russian Empire from between 1907-1915 taken with a (literally!) unique camera.
