Old Kodachrome photos

February 1943. Working on the horizontal stabilizer of a “Vengeance” dive bomber at the Consolidated-Vultee plant in Nashville. 4×5 Kodachrome transparency by Alfred Palmer for the Office of War Information.

Here is a collection of seldom seen photos, in Kodachrome color, from the WW11 era, and found on Pavel Kosenko's Russian blog.     The color and clarity is incredible. These are gleaned from the website . is good for using up lots of your spare time.

Not to be missed!


  1. I have some kodachrome slides but nothing interesting on them.

  2. Nice sharp color on those old slides. I shot some kodachrome back in the seventies but on a cheap little 110 kodak camera so they don't compare to these. Still ,, they are a little bit of my own history and valuable just for that.

    1. I like the photo of Mary & Bill. What kind of hide is that?
