    I just got a hold of an old Kodak poster at an auction over the
    weekend. It's 19"x30" in sepia. The words "Kodak Keeps Them Little"
    across the top, a picture of a little girl on a tree branch holding a
    teddy bear, and the words "Enlarged from a snapshot made on Kodak
    Verichrome Film" at the bottom with a smaller picture of the larger
    picture beside these words.

    I've looked all over the web and can't find details on this poster.
    Obviously, I know when Kodak was putting out the Verichrome film, so I
    can approximate the age of the poster. That is, if the poster is an
    original advertisement. Anyone out there know anything about my new
    find?

    I can't authenicate your poster, but I have a collection of some old Kodak
    TV commercials, and the theme seems right. Kodak's ads used to be big on
    sentiment and children growing up. Does it have a corporate trademark on it?
    In the 1930's the logo would have been a yellow rectangle with the name
    Kodak in red block letters.

    No . . that's the problem. There is no trademark on the picture,
    which is what
    made me wonder if it's authentic or not. Whether or not, it's still
    pretty cool
    and goes well behind all the old cameras I've collected over the years.
