Colored Pre-War Photos

Recommended Posts

Don't know if these have been posted before but thought I would share. Believe it or not, I think these colored pictures came from Russia. No collusion here folks.

I would like for someone to ID some of these cars since I'm not familiar with pre-war autos.

Those are great photos, love to see more of them.  Probably Kodachrome (1935-2009) - the best film ever!  I still have my Kodak Flash Bantam folding pocket camera that used 828 roll film, paper-backed 35 mm Kodachrome unperforated stock, that made 40 mm x 28 mm images, much bigger than standard 24 mm x 36 mm film used in "35 mm" cameras.  The 828 images have the equivalent of about 200 megapixels, so the images can be greatly enlarged.  I still have lots of Kodachrome slides that have not faded, even after all these years.  They even show my hair as reddish-brown, not like the gray color I get with digital cameras now.

 

Mama, don't take my Kodachrome away!

2nd photo, 1938 Studebaker on the right with Model A behind. The Stude has the "helmet" lights so probably a State Commander 8A. The front looks too short to be a President.

 

First photo, 1936 Ford (yellow license plate) facing camera.
