Thanks, Richard and Xavier. Don't worry about "peeping." My family is happy to have these up. My older aunt's house burned down in the 80s, so she and her husband and 4 kids lost all their family pictures. My Mom stashed these slides away soon after taking, and they've been sitting in a box for ~60 years. I'm bringing the memories back.

I know what you mean about Kodachrome's life vs. other processes. There are some color prints and Ektachrome slides in the box, too, and they are faded. But the B&W and the Kodachrome is as good as new. Paul Simon was right!

P.S. I love your dog, Xavier! And yes, I wish for a bit of Spanish sunshine at this time of year, too. Il fait très gris à Seattle.

Hello Peter!

Yes, it was nice to see these, although I felt a peeper as obviously these are
family albums.

I kept clicking thu the gally and found myself in dront of what I found
marvelous when I got there, the Mosque Cathedral of Cordoba.
If I had time, It would be a delicious perspective for a week end: Cordoba is
much decent in February than Maisons Alfort!
