Set of Kodachrome slides taken from contemporaneous television broadcast.

This is an image of time-travel. These slides were taken by my grandfather as a record of the lunar landing. They show contemporary record of one of the great global spectacles of the 20th with a touching element of amateurism. The video images broadcast from the lunar surface through the earth’s atmosphere to be reproduced worldwide on CRT TVs, then to be captured on Kodachrome 64 is an encapsulates an incredible history of the recorded image.
