Although this slide – and it is not a Kodachrome – comes from the Horace Sykes collection, we will not give an “Our Daily Sykes” number. Rather Horace Sykes’ lightshow lets you know that this week we have no NOW and THEN because Pacific Magzine is featuring the show we arranged (handled) that just opened at the Museum of History and Industry. Since the Pacific Story is a unique creation of the newspaper staff taking example of the now-then features from the past, but then also featuring Ron Edge and the work he did on the 1912 Baist real estate map, we will not post anything here of what they have done there. We’ll be back next week with another elaboration of the now-then featured then in Pacific. For the moment we encourage you to visit MOHAI, although you have some indefinite time into 2012 before the REPEAT PHOTOGRAPHY show or exhibit is closed with the old museum. It is being razed after 60 years of service for the new addtions to the Evergreen Floating Bridge. MOHAI will, we suspect you know, be moving to the naval armory at the south end of Lake Union. We will conclude with more on Sykes. His lightshow is exceptional. We mean nothing like it appears in his collection that is anything like it. And it is not a Kodachrome, but a slide that used a color process that did not hold – the slides that used it have all faded the point that Photoshop thinks that they are black and white records. Except for this one, which has kept some of whatever color it once started with.
