A client recently brought in negatives from the 40s and 50s. We made contact sheets in the darkroom for the client so they could see the family members throughout the years.
We had some wonderful clients come in with their parents/grandparents film collection from 1946 Berlin. Close to 50 rolls of Kodak and Agfa film. They were stored in a wooden chocolate box for close to 70 years! It was like opening up a time capsule.
The film was all neatly marked with location and dates. None of the film was damaged except the paper wrapping was brittle to the touch. It was wonderful to hear the stories of the film and the travels of the clients father. We will make sure to post images as we develop them!
