Aged Slide

In my recent slide scanning I hadn't come across any badly aged or damaged slides until today. It's from the mid-1980s. I don't know what kind of film it is, but it sure ain't Kodachrome. I've got lots of Ektachromes and Agfachromes that show no aging, so I'm sure this isn't either of those. BTW, I have no recollection of what this building is or where it's located.
