1922 Kodachrome Test Footage

As a lover of all things vintage, especially classic film, this video just fascinates me. It is four and a half minutes of glorious full-color test footage of Kodachrome film made by Kodak in 1922 -- well worth viewing if you have the time. The lighting and color are just exquisite.

That was so awesome. :) And I loved the hat and dress of the girl around the 1:40 mark (except whatever that was hanging from her hat that she kept messing with :).

@Kristin - I had a feeling you'd appreciate this video! :) And I couldn't agree with you more about that particular hat!
