    Another old film found

    Hi everyone,

    When hunting for photo antiques I found a Kodak Hawkeye model B with still a 120 film in it !
    It is a very old roll of Agfa Isopan ISS (black and white film).

    I tried to get a consensus over what I read on the net about guidelines for development of such an old film.
    Not very easy. So i finished by processing it 10 min in HC-110 dilution B (1+31), rotating processing in Jobo.

    I think that only a few frame was exposed a long time ago, and only one was surviving. The film base was cribbled by pinholes, but the first image is still clearly here :

    I am very happy to see this !

    If ever someone recognizes somebody, please let me know ! I think this photograph was taken probably in the 1950's or earlier, the toddler is probably a grandfather now !

    Regards,

    Raphael

    Raphael,

    You could try posting the image to reddit. They personify the hive mind.

    Good luck,

    Hi Agx,

    Sorry, it's only on the emulsion, the base seems to be intact, it's a misuse of language from my part.

    Regards,

    Raphael

    Hi, thanks to all for your replies.

    I confess I was pessimistic when I open the processing tank, at the first glance the film on the spool seemed completely dark !
    But when unrolling, I found the very last frame, and it was a good surprise !

    Best regards,

    Raphael

    Another old film found

    That's amazing and sad at the same time, someone took such a nice image of their child and never developed it... Kind of sad...
