Kodachrome Classic Monday #44

Every Monday, I'll be spotlighting a different classic Kodachrome slide that I've picked up, and trying where I can to detail the who, what, when, where, why, and how (much) of the image:

This Week:

What: Near the Beach Amusement Park

Why: Just a grab shot, but still a very valuable one.  This shot captures a resort town in its Summer peak, complete with both strollers and a child in a stroller.  Everything here looks healthy and vibrant.         

When: It was 1952, according to the auction listing.  

Where: Old Orchard Beach, ME. The slide was also labeled with the city, and most deduction seems to put it just east of the railroad crossing on Old Orchard Street facing the water and the amusement pier.     


Who: Lots of people to be picked out from this scene, but nothing to note who any of them are.

How (much): A simple $4.99 pick up from ebay.
