Kodachrome slide help needed
Check it slide. This is a good one too! It is the ending of an era. Other mounts, non-Kodak? The links you provided are fantastic, but I was wondering if it was possible to find Kodachrome mounted in cardboard or plastic mounts that DID NOT have the word "Kodachrome" on them? For example, I'm working on scanning some older family slides from the 50's and 60's. One box has a graphic Kodachrome the lid that datings "Brown Photo", with the word "Slides" printed to the right. Probably the name of the local camera store, I would assume.
Provides dates to kodak slides
The slides inside are dated "Nov 66" on one slide, and the simple text "Color Transparency" and "This Side Towards Screen" on the other. Nowhere does it say Kodachrome - but the film clearly has the raised relief topography of Kodachrome, and it Kodachrome visually appears to be Kodachrome. I'm reluctant to dating the mount and remove the film to make sure, because they were entrusted to me and I guess it really isn't absolutely necessary to know for sure.
Just my own curiosity. I have some slides of my own that I shot in the early 's that are in plastic slides that I just KNOW are Kodachrome, but there is no indication anywhere on these mounts either. I also know for certain that this film had not been re-mounted into the plastic. I understand that the even though the film may have been dropped off at a local shop, if it was Kodachrome it still had to be processed by a Kodak Kodachrome, right?
Would Kodak have done the processing but not put their name on the mount? Any info you folks could share would be fantastic, Thank you.
