The Ferrous Archive is a growing collection of vintage or ephemeral photography and photographica, with an enthusiastic emphasis on early colour processes such as autochrome, Kodachrome, and Ektachrome.
This badly faded slide is a very good example of why Kodachrome and Ektachrome are so remarkable - because this is neither and you plainly see how it has aged ungracefully. Unlike the subject of the slide, the irresistible Royal Pavilion in Brighton is lovingly preserved and quite a magical place. Today I had my regular therapeutic phone-date with my English friend George, and this place came up as where I hope to be during the last few years of my life while I can still make a contribution to the world around me. That would be a satisfying end, I think.
