For the last few months I’ve been working at digitizing and posting old Kodachromes that were taken in the 1960s by my great-uncle, Jack Cuthbert. So far I’ve scanned about 10 magazines (about 30 slides per magazine) and I’ve uploaded 3 magazines so far to my Flickr page.

Most of them consist of Nova Scotia photographs, but others include some really neat shots of London somewhere in the early-to-mid 1960s. Haven’t gotten that far yet though, still entering metadata and info into the tags re: what the photos are of, where they were taken, etc.

About 70-80 photos are up on my Flickr so far, and there is more to come!


A selection:

I’m also in the process of scanning my Dad’s large transparency collection dating, mostly, from the 1970s. We discovered them not to long ago. He thought he had lost them forever!

Photo of boxed slides, many Kodachrome.
My dads recently found slide collection.

Also, really hoping my long thought-about old-London-photo blog idea comes to fruition, but I’m not holding my breath, mainly because of practicality and time..
