Approximately 1969-1970.

@Chris any idea when this was taken ?

These excellent picures have been taken at one of the best strategic spots for photographers.

More words of agreement from me, this one falls within the "I wish I'd taken that!" category. When viewed in full screen or original size her perfect appearance can be seen to have been marred by the location of the galley gash chute which is spreading the gash across her side rather than ejecting it.

Tony: Yup! I went there....and scrolled around to my hearts content.....I was almost on-board!
Great photo....great scan....great memories...Thank you all....Trevor obviously.
Keep 'em coming.
And Tony: Every time someone says the word: "Kodachrome" the same song runs through my head too.
"Mama...don't take my Kodachrome away" I was there....Cheers.

Well noted Marc: Kodachrome was the "Bee's Knees" at that time. Nothing lost nor wasted.
But we are all so lucky that these gems are still here....Thanks Chris....Just Magnificent.
Much appreciated.

Nice to see some levity on the site Tony.

You give us those nice bright colours
You give us the greens of summers
Makes you think all the worlds a sunny day, oh yeah!
I got a Nikon camera
I love to take a photograph
So Mama, don't take my Kodachrome away

You are right Ken, we are so lucky to have permission from Trevor to have these top knotch scans on the site.

Opening the email nowadays is like being next to a chocolate factory, open the door and something new and good appears !

Trevor has mentioned this is the tip of the iceberg so many more to come.

His only regret is using Agfa slide film, for a period, he lost 1000's from best period for him the early 70's as they just faded away, fortunately this is a Kodachrome.

Good cameras and lenses plus great old Kodachrome film (often KR-25) produced excellent results combined here with a top notch slide scanner to bring out the clarity and contrast in colors.
Ken Smith on Feb 18, 2013 12:59 (7 years ago)
The clarity of this one is amazing Chris considering the gear available in those days.
