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.
Got some sweet new slides and autochromes this week, take a look at the fantastic composition on this one! I'm starting to realise the shortcomings of this little slide scanner, it's missing the sharpness of the original. [I've re-scanned this since posting this item, and I have replaced the links, the current image is better] What on earth are these ladies doing? The slide is labeled 'Ashness Bridge' but who would go and just "hang out" at a bridge like this? Particularly this group?
"Oh Betty? What say we meet down at the bridge, I'll bring my knitting and you can get pissed and pass out. Sound like fun? I'll call the girls and we'll see you there."
