Jersey Boys (Kodachrome)

bigger
Photographer: My Grandfather.
Location: Weehawken, NJ
Date: 1960
Camera: Argus
Film: Kodachrome Slide developed April, 1960.

OK, so this is a 47 year old slide, and I did next to nothing to it.
Personally, I think this shot is perfect.
And, damn, someone had a nice ride!

    What a classic shot! I love old Kodachromes. And this actually reminds me a little of shots of my dad and his clan (also Jersey Boys).

    The sweet ride was Aunt Amelia's (in window) new Valiant with red leather interior. Her driving was a bit on the wild side - she would go a little crazy on the country roads upstate New York and nearly wrapped it around a tree with a few of us kids in it. Luckily, we all came out unscathed. Tough little car.

    Thanks all!

    Aunt Amelia was a psychotic driver by all accounts, I would have liked to have taken a drive with her. You know, once maybe. Gotta try everything once. =D

    My second car was a 60 Valiant, same color. Notice the hub caps looke like Prince Valiant's shield. A fave!

    Also nice to see a car as it was new rather than restored. That Kodachrome sure holds up over time.

    I love how the women are looking out the window. This is definitely a classic photo with a classic film.
