It’s time for the third installment of slides from the KTLA Channel 5 archives. This week focuses on the graphics that aired before KTLA aired a movie or for one of their early or late programs.
A decade ago I purchased a box of slides from an online auction. The photos, from the 50s-80s were taken by a semi-professional photographer named C.H Ford from Seattle, Washington. There are hundreds of fantastic photos from Seattle, Canada and places continental.
For this Found (Ford) Photo Friday, I though it would be fun to share some of his photos of Seattle.

For a brief period in 2012, KTLA channel 5 Los Angeles posted many of their old slides from their archives to Flickr. The majority of the archive is from the late 70s to mid-80s.
I thought it would be fun to share some of the treasures. This may end up being several posts, but here are a dozen advertising their own channel
Happy New Year, everyone. planning on really ramping up the posts again for 2021.
This has been a trying year for everyone. Here’s hoping for a better year!
Here are two found photos of someone watching the celebration from their living room TV (with a cameo from the Christmas tree).
So this is Gay Paree – come along with me – we’re stepping out to see the Latin Quarter. This late 40s/early 50s souvenir photo is from New York’s popular dinner spot and nightclub.
This week’s Found Photo Friday treasure is a late 1940s souvenir photo from a wonderful evening out at the world-famous Copacabana in New York.
Welcome to another edition of Found Photo Friday. These images, from my collection, are orphaned photos that have little to no information known.
Note: I actually meant to post this on Friday but I somehow scheduled it for Saturday.
Found Photo Friday finally returns with one of my favorite series of photos.
These two images were taken on Thornwood Avenue in Wilmette, Illinois. You can see the houses across the street on Google Street View.
The first photo, taken in the Fall of 1964, shows a woman and her daughter standing in drab weather, next to the family’s old, rusted 1955 Cadillac.
The second photo is much sunnier. Taken in the Spring of 1965, the woman is adorned with spring colors and gets a chance to show her new pride and joy, a 1965 Pontiac.
