A southeast Kansas business that is the last place in the world to process Kodachrome has been inundated with the elaborately crafted color-reversal film as it prepares to stop handling it.
Grant Steinle primarily runs Dwayne's Photo, the business in the small town of Parsons that his father founded in 1956. He said the company received "a tsunami of film" after announcing it would stop processing Kodachrome at the end of 2010.
The Kansas City Star reported that the stop date for processing the film has been postponed to Monday or Tuesday at the earliest.
Business has been so hectic that for a time, processing went on 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The deadline for submitting film was Dec. 30.
