Kodak slide box, 1963

From the Henry Wolf donation, not archived

In the 1960s Kodak returned developed Kodachrome in these slide boxes. It’s an elegant packaging system, simple and well-proportioned: pushing on the side that reads PUSH HERE (not, say, the one that reads PUSH FROM OTHER SIDE) reveals an elegantly built-in paper hinge and divider for the two sections.
