    OT: Fighter and Anyone 2

     

    I came across X some 1942 - Ultra-clear Color Photos

    Amazing quality!!

    Back in the mid '80s when I was working at Hellers Camera in Bethesda Md. I had a reference book with a color photo of the battleship Pennsylvania in an advanced base sectional dock, somewhere in the Pacific based around 1944..........

    The quality of the photos made it clear that it was shot with a large format camera, which puzzled me since I did not think Kodachrome (the only modern color film of the time in the US ) was available in sheet films............

    A guy I worked with was an old Kodak hand (and WWII vet, a radioman in Europe) and told me that they did have sheet Kodachrome, and that there was only one machine to process the film, located in Rochester.............

    Anyway, my understanding is the exposed film was sent there for processing. What I noticed from the developed pictures was the almost complete lack of basic safety equipment.......he...he.....I saw only one pair of safety glasses, and only a few of the workers were wearing gloves......(But they were all hard at work and not worrying about food stamps and such......Even though they were getting subsidized from other sources....

    BTW, working without gloves around sheet metal is an injury waiting to happen.....Or, in modern days a lawsuit that a lawyer is awakening......

    However, I did notice most of the woman had lip stick and nail polish on (yes! While working for our freedom)....I also imagined from the pictures they were poppin bubbles from the gum?....Not quit sure though). Anyway....What I learned from da pictures is, WWII could not have been won without the woman of America stepping into men's shoes to build the equipment needed to defeat the axis powers. (Yeah I know fighter, hey, my moms was born in Dachau, and yes I have visited a few places their, many times/fold (tX/f){} Anyway.....

    Fascinating! Some of these images are 70 years old and look as fresh as ever (Kodachrome quality was awesome back then, even our modern digital camers suck compared to these pictures)...Reallly....

    If someone had told any of the subjects in these photos that we'd have such a clear look at them in the year 2013... Boggles my mind. I wish I had your(s) email address to send them too you good individuals, but als, I must keep them to meselves.....For now......

    But, I know sum of you would find them interesting!
