The Kodachrome Toronto Registry began in 2011. If you want to register a collection, tell us.

Forever Kodachrome 1935–2010 theme buttons support the Registry. They're also pretty neat.

Also on Twitter.

Group Description

The Kodachrome Toronto pool on Flickr is a casual offshoot of the Kodachrome Toronto Registry project. This pool curates what Flickr users are posting to their feeds. It's open to anyone, and adding anything is completely voluntary. It's also a lot of fun to see what everyone else has added.

Sometimes, an admin may invite one or more of your photos to the pool. Accepting an invitation is also completely voluntary. If already described in the Kodachrome Toronto Registry, you may see a Registry accession number linked with those photos (something like KT2013999).

FLICKR POOL RULES

1) TOPICAL. You agree that anything you add to the Kodachrome Toronto pool comes from Kodachrome emulsion. Your photos or movie clips can include any subject material, just as long as it was shot in Toronto, the GTA, or the Greater Golden Horseshoe area (i.e., Halton Hills is OK; Kingston is not).

2) DESCRIPTION LABOUR. You agree to tag your photos with ‘‘Kodachrome’’ and ‘‘Toronto’’ (or ‘‘Greater Toronto Area’’). Other descriptive tags relating to the photo (dates, boroughs, cardinal directions, the camera used, etc.) are even more helpful. Each tag makes searching on photos like yours a lot easier to locate. Knowledge is golden!

3) AGREEMENT FOR EDITORIAL USE. By adding to the Kodachrome Toronto pool, you agree that any photo listed as Creative Commons or in the public domain may be featured on Kodachrome Toronto blog posts. Written permission will be sought first before featuring any photos listed as copyrighted. Any photo, if used, shall not be used for commercial purposes.

We work on the honour system. Posting digitally made images, adding digital ‘‘Kodachrome’’ filters to a photo, or slides shot beyond the areas mentioned above may have posting privileges withdrawn.

THE KODACHROME TORONTO REGISTRY

The Kodachrome Toronto Registry is a permanent finding aid for researchers, documenting every known Kodachrome collection chronicling any aspect of Toronto during the 75 years (1935 to 2010) of Kodachrome's availability. The Registry has documented collections from families, current photographers, institutions, businesses, and other miscellaneous places. Researchers include architectural historians, cultural historians, transportation planners, and so on. The Registry's long-term goal of conserving original media is to find an archives facility to professionally store registered collections (while ownership is retained with the original custodian or photographer). Slide collections and home movies are listed in the Registry.

If you'd like to have a slide/home movie collection accounted for in the Kodachrome Toronto Registry, just let us know. Inclusion in the Registry is completely voluntary and greatly appreciated by researchers.
