Kodachrome Milwaukee


Explore long-lost and never-before-seen images of downtown, Mayfair Mall’s Ice Chalet, Brady Street, the Mitchell Park Domes, Milwaukee County Stadium, and much, much more. Introduced by Kodak in 1935, Kodachrome quickly became popular with professional and amateur photographers in the years after World War II. Countless Kodachrome slides now lie neglected and discarded in attics and basements like tiny time capsules just waiting to be rediscovered. Sharing more than 140 full-color photos from his own collection, Adam Levin, curator of the popular Old Milwaukee Facebook group, leads a stroll down memory lane into the Milwaukee of yesteryear.

About the Author
As curator of the “Old Milwaukee” Facebook group, Adam Levin has provided Milwaukeeans with photos and tidbits of the Cream City’s rich heritage. In 2020, he released Fading Ads of Milwaukee to showcase the city’s ghost signs. When not wandering the city photographing building demolitions or newly revealed signs, Adam can be spotted perusing photographs and 35mm Kodachrome slides of bygone Milwaukee at local antique stores and estate sales.
