Re: NP box car colors in the 50's... OT quality control.


 

The Delano picture brought to mind when I worked at the "Yellow Box". The yellow color of those Kodak film boxes was patented. We had to run to a standard... in and out color charts and use a Spectrometer to assure the yellow was in limits... not unlike the fellow in the picture with his large color chips. The point is there was variability even in strictly controlled conditions... to the best of our ability for the times.
