With the demise of Kodachrome film in 2009, the colour palette that in many ways defined an era also disappeared. The 200+ Kodachrome slides selected by Ed Jones and Timothy Prus for reproduction in The Corinthians: A Kodachrome Slideshow – a visual commentary on the letters of St Paul – portray the new prosperity of a postwar United States, where TVs, barbecues, big cars and summer vacations take centre stage.
