A coffin? Are you supposed to send a message from beyond the grave saying "wish you were here"? Creepy.

Hell? Or perhaps just artifacts from another time.
Go to any card display today and you will also see "hell."

Love these as well but the colors aren't kodachrome per say(most of these are much older than kodachrome) but the printing process postcards were done with in the 50's and 60s. And the post office shot is a hand tinted black and white

That coffin was priceless. It looks so...comfortable.
