Vintage Wedding "Album" in Slides FUN STUFF…

Jump to Comments

I literally found this in my attic the other day and thought it would be fun to share it with you — it’s a wedding “album” from 1957!    Back then, it was common for photographers to deliver newlyweds their wedding slides rather than prints.  They were organized in these type of mini-briefcases…

The color slides were individually encased in protective glass…

The white object in the middle was the viewfinder.  You loaded a slide into the top and an internal light allowed for viewing the image.

These are a few of the slides....

It was really a brilliant system because to this day, the slides are in mint condition! 

The beautiful bride...

Luckily, we know the owner of this long-lost treasure so we’ll be handing it over right away.  But how cool is this little slice of vintage life?
