Camo Class: 1943

Camo Class: 1943

        In this WW2 Kodachrome we have the opening frame of the first-ever Shorpy Filmstrip® -- sort of a coming-attractions trailer for Shorpy 2.0, with larger pictures and type.

March 1943. "Camouflage class in New York University, where men and women are preparing for jobs in the Army or in industry, New York, N.Y. They make models from aerial photographs, re-photograph them, then work out a camouflage scheme and make a final photograph." Medium format Kodachrome transparency by Marjory Collins for the Office of War Information. View full size.

Shorpy Filmstrip (R)

Thumbs up on the Shorpy Filmstrip(R). That will be a nice enhancement in Shorpy 2.0. Many times, when I see an interesting photo on Shorpy, I go to the Library of Congress web site and see that there was a whole series of related photos. This feature will allow us to see the related photos. Of course, Shorpy often enhances old photos by eliminating water spots, colorizing, etc. I suspect your workload is about to increase. Best wishes for keeping up!
