Presenting For Your Pleasure …

OldSlidesTitle

Over the holidays I spent some time looking at ancient slide photography. The image above turned up in a tray of old slides taken by Harold’s father. Isn’t that cool typography? The more things change the more they stay the same.

The reason I was looking at old slides was that I wanted to give my kids some images from their childhood. Like a lot of families, we took photos in the 1970s on slide film. Those slides filled up boxes that didn’t ever get looked at again. We don’t even have a slide projector anymore. Does anyone?

As promised in the pitch above, I did take a lot of pleasure in looking at those old “natural-color slides”. So for this week’s entry, I picked favourites to share with you. Here we go: “From the pictorial library of your host, presented for your viewing pleasure …”
