A friend recently sent me a link to a great collection of color travel photos from the 1930s and the 1940s.  Photos are derived from the private kodachrome collection of Charles W Cushman.  


It's a fascinating collection of photos!  You'll be astonished at how much and how little has changed in three quarters of a century.   Worth a look at this link.

I missed this the first time around...and while the scenics are great, it is the touching close-ups and groups of "ordinary" people that are truly outstanding; they remind me of the work of Louis Hine and Beatrice Abbott...but in color.


Speaking of color...I'm also reminded of how much better early Kodachrome was at reds than at blues and greens...

The best part of every trip is realizing that it has upset your expectations
