    From 1936-1965, how big were typical amateur photo prints? I know the Kodachrome came out in '36, but I can't find any info as to the typical print size. Were the corners rounded?

    I need this for theater prop design; the Stoneleaf Festival thanks you in advance.

    Take a look here ,it has all the old negative sizes. I think most prints would be about the same size since there were mostly contact prints in the early days.. Later on 3.5 or 4 x5 mostly. 35mm were 3.5 x 5 for years.

    From what I can tell, normal printing was done 1:1. So it really depended on the camera used.
