Chalmers Butterfield’s Travels In Kodachrome

A gorgeous series of slides documenting an American's travels in the 1950s and 1960s

We know Chalmers Butterfield was in England in 1949. And we know the American was using Kodachrome film to record his visit to London. We also know that he traveled widely. He went to Acapulco, Aspen (1962), Los Angeles, Idaho, Cannes, San Francisco, Chicago and Mexico City. And he liked to take photographs of the planes and at least one air stewardess. We also know that the images were posted on the web by ‘F64too’.
