Mama Can't Take My Kodachrome No More

My Memories Are In Color - Kodachrome: 1935-2010

The New York Times :  "For Kodachrome Fans, Road Ends At Photo Lab"

PARSONS, Kansas — An unlikely pilgrimage is under way to Dwayne’s Photo, a small family business that has through luck and persistence become the last processor in the world of Kodachrome, the first successful and still the most beloved color film.  That celebrated 75-year run from mainstream to niche photography is scheduled to come to an end on Thursday when the last processing machine is shut down here to be sold for scrap.  “The best slide and movie film in history is now officially retired. Kodachrome: 1935-2010.”
