A friend referred me to this great collection of large format Kodachromes from the early 1940s. I love the color, drama and precision in these photographs. They look like they were shot with digital cameras. I can’t help but think of Mad Men when I look at some of these…need to cut back. Below are some of my favorites. View more after the jump. View even more here. Keep shooting!
