Nemo Hall, Petrolia, Ontario, during a snowstorm

  Nemo Hall - Petrolia, Ontario Much of Southern Ontario experienced a good old fashioned snowstorm last week. Nice thick stuff that sticks to the trees and makes everything look all pretty and Christmasy.  Nemo Hall , built in 1878, is the only remaining building of the Second Empire Style in the town of Petrolia. I think it looks timeless in the snow. 

Kodachrome of the day - Man selling slides in Europe

I love this Kodachrome because this photo captures something that probably doesn't exist anymore. A street vendor selling slides.  These sets contained professionally photographed pictures of all the famous places you would be most likely to visit on your vacation. The picture below is a set that the vendor most likely had for sale. Some of the photos in this set included these gems. Check out these amateur kodachromes of Rome . I think these are better than the professional ones.

Slide of the day - Hollywood Street scene from the 1960s - Capitol Records

   I love this photo! It was taken in the early 1960s in Hollywood Ca.  I currently have it for sale on Ebay if you are interested in the original slide.
