1950’s and Kodachrome | Family and the lake

KODACHROME – I won’t lie, I loved it. My Grandfather loved it. These are straight out of an archival box of his Kodachrome. I don’t have specific details but these are primarily family fun at the lake. Sailing, swimming and hanging with family.

Warning: this is a long post – most of these were taken in the early 50’s (guessing by the ages)

quick! family photo opportunity while everyone is captive in the water. 🙂img990

Grandpa was ahead of his time here. We have the stylish “hipster” quality light going on with a slight tilt to the horizon and slightly oof – 🙂img987

This photo cracks me up!!! So much that I posted a close-up below of what’s going onimg986

No one looks particularly happy here except Kate McGreevy. Uncle Bud Pridemore – love that he’s at the lake but has his bowtie on (albeit slightly askew a la rat pak style), Johnny (I’ve never seen a grimace on him like this), Cele, Richard, Kate, Penny (looking mighty unhappy), Mike and Jane who seems to be holding Mike in-check against his will. All in all a great family shot!img986r
