Highway USA (and us)
Just over 10 years ago, we presented this classic show at the organizational meeting of the NY Stereo Society. It was produced by the Barber-Greene paving company in 1948, with narration by Paul Harvey, and shown around the country at fairs and civic meetings to pitch the idea that building highways is a good thing. It seems to have been a success.
Members are invited to respond to this ode to the open road in America with your own postcard-like pictures of natural parks, urban wonders, pretty girls and cars. Drop a note to info (at) ny3d dot org so we can plan for your Realist-format slides. Vintage collections and your own work are welcome. After the show we'll migrate to some nearby establishment for anniversary libations.
This Realist-format conversion of the original Kodachrome plates is shown courtesy of the National Stereoscopic Association.
