Never realized that Kodachrome was available in large format sizes. Many years ago I shot 4x5 format, but it was always B&W.
Here's a link to some incredible photos that have withstood the passage of time. Yet another example of why we need to print our photos. In 60 years who will be able to read SD cards, CD or DVD's?

Hope you enjoy these!

Absolutely stunning assembly! Wish I could examine to prints. Thanks for posting. Last year I passed on a 100-200 count, heavily waterproofed WWII military pack of 8x10 Kodachrome film which was given to me a decade ago. That package looked like it could have floated all the way to the Pacific Theater of Operations in tact.

That's a really nice set of photos. Of course, while nicely composed and well lit, the extremely limited dynamic range makes them virtually useless for any serious application ;)
