While I don't have an answer to hand, one data point: in the
1939 film THE WIZARD OF OZ, sepia-tone (rather than standard
B/W) was used in the Kansas segments to give them a "dated" or 
antiquated feel, giving me the impression that sepia must have
been out of vogue for some time at that point -- by Hollywood
standards, that is, so at least a year or two.
