Pretty sure we had color film by at least 1970 - maybe not in Utah.

"Pretty sure we had color film by at least 1970 - maybe not in Utah."

Keep in mind that these were newspaper photos and it wasn't until much later that they began using color photographs with news stories. It not only wouldn't have made sense to waste money on color film for the paper, but it wouldn't have reproduced as well in black and white.
