Vintage Kodak Slides

I've spent a fruitless evening surfing through eBay looking for vintage slides to use in making my SX70 and TtV images. I lost all of my photographic images (10,000+ images) when my computer crashed in late August so I've decided to scan and use my father's old slides to alter in Photoshop. Sounds like a great idea but I've come to realize that I'll need a lot more than Daddy's photography if I plan to keep on working. I always thought he had a camera at his eye but I've not been able to find more than 75-100 slides. *sigh* I love my great ideas but hate it when I can't find a way to carry them out!

So here's an appeal to all my readers. If you have vintage slides you'd like to sell.. I'm interested. If you'd rather do a 'loner' thing I'd be happy to trade with some of my work. Just leave a comment and I'll track you down. Thanks for any vintage images you can dredge up for me. I'm devastated to lose so much of my work. A hard lesson learned, always back up your computer even if you think you've got top of the line virus protection!


  1. Oh no! I'm sorry~ I don't have any vintage slides.... but I sure will keep my eyes open for you!
    Happy day!

  2. I have some slides from my childhood, so they must be vintage ( I am so old!) but I don't like to part with themn, but I will have a look for you and see if there is anything I can spare! Suzie. x

  3. That is a real bummer- reminds me of when I lost tons of original lyrics and music in a flood- it can be heartbreaking. But, something will open up. Keep your chin up. :)
    Take care,

  4. Are you Buying Slides? I have a collection of vintage slides from the late 30's early 40's would possibly sell some.

  5. i have about 500 boxes of 3D 35mm Stereo Slides from just about everywhere in the world. If you'd like to see some samples i have scanned and some box labels to see the vast assortment send me an email at

    Each slide is labeled with the location and date and so is each box
