Mom Prom Dress Rosebush 1948

Mom, Frances Tuzzolino, in her prom dress in our yard by the kitchen's mini rose bush. Boro Park Brooklyn NY. Taken by our relative Tony Mistretta 4x5 Professional Color Slide - likely Ektachrome. The picture was severely faded. I worked on it for a hour. This is a scanned 8x10 print where the black border actually exists as a result of the transfer positive color printing process. I left it in to preserve the tell-tale technical nature of this late 1940s slide print. This was most likely printed by a Manhattan-class wedding/special occasion lab. Tony and Uncle Al had friends in that industry.

I don't see "KODAK" anywhere on the print. To fully appreciate the photograph's and my Mother's beauty, see the larger size. Thanks for stopping by. ANOTHER ONE * ANOTHER ONE *
