Classic Kodachrome Monday #62

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: The Bridges of Madison Fairfield County

Why: One of a number of shots of covered bridges that were in a batch lot I picked up, this one stands out just a bit more for offering just enough era context in the form of the passing automobile to provide a nice look at two distance passing eras in the same scene.       

When: Around October of 1961 based upon the stamping on the mount.  

Where: Lancaster, OH. Interestingly, there were no "names" to discern these covered bridge photos from each other, and it seems that even with some code numbers to itemize these bridge photos, the ability to readily locate them was still a bit vague.  Finally, a hit on Bridgehunter revealed the location, and offered up some interesting history to this bridge, one of a number of historic bridges in this remote Ohio locale.


Who: Don't know who is rambling past in the distance.        

How (much): I think the entire set of slides from which this was culled cost around $20 or so.  While some shots of the batch are better than others, I'd hardly be featuring too many from this pickup.
