Memory Monday, Week 61

Wesco Colored Slides were advertised in Popular Photography magazines during the 1940s and 1950s as an easy way to visit faraway beauty spots or “fillers”  for personal holiday slideshows. The scenes were shot by professional photographers, so they’re unquestionably well done. Sadly, my current slide scanner isn’t able to do justice to the colors in these scenes, although I’ve done my best to approximate the hues of original slides.
