Description

    1953-56 Indianapolis 500 Color Slides Collection Lot of 135. Color photography in the 1950s was very much 'few and far between.' Offered here are 135 color positives that are housed in the rather unique Compco slide holders. Compco, which is a very highly respected film accessory company, mainly for their film reels, invented a holder for negatives that includes two micro thin pieces of glass held together with a square aluminum frame. There is only one way to open the holder and remove the film.

    The images were shot at the Speedway in the "Golden Age" and it includes many pit area shots, Gasoline Alley snaps and includes cars and drivers who dominated that era: McGrath, Vukovich, Tony Hulman, pace cars, Faulkner, Sweikert, Parsons and Jimmy Bryan, along with race action among others. There are only a few that are not Indy-related.

    Each slide is 2 ½" square which would easily produce quality enlargements. All were taken by a very adept professional photographer. You receive all rights to the images. The collection is housed in one Compco hinged box that includes moveable partitions so that you can keep your subjects divided.
