Shots of Flowers, circa 1929 [Kodacolor film]

This home movie was shot on Kodacolor film, a rare and short-lived color film stock that came to prominence in the late 1920s but was phased out by the mid-1930s in favor of Kodachrome film. Kodacolor film must be shown on a projector fitted with a special, tri-color lens filter in order to be seen in color. Without the filter, the film appears in black and white, as it is seen here.
