Uncle Paul: 1957

Uncle Paul: 1957

Here's my great uncle Paul at my great grandparents house in East LA. The photo was taken in May, 1957. Unfortunately I didn't have the negative and had to scan the badly faded Kodacolor print which I cleaned up a bit in Photoshop. View full size.

That's what I call a Hudson

Wow, what a beautiful Hudson! I'm not up on all the various Hudson flavors, but I'll take a wild guess and say it's a 1953 Hornet Club Coupe. Thanks for posting this!

Unfortunately this was right smack dab in the middle of the period when Kodacolor prints, instead of fading fairly evenly to yellow as they had previously, just totally lost some colors altogether, and there's no way to get them back. Even with correction they look something like old two-color Technicolor, or colorized black-and-white. I took a stab at it, though.
