    I read that there are a few small operation services that do this, with the option to do only B&W for a better possibility of viewable results. Its always a shot in the dark with film exposed so long ago, you never know how it was handled, or left in what temps, or in areas of high radiation.

    I somehow segued to film recovery whilst reading about Everest, and the summit attempt by Mallory and Irvine, and the possibility of recovery of the Kodak roll film camera they carried. There is a document written by a Kodak tech for the general handling of the camera and film if ever recovered. A very interesting read for anyone with a bit of time.

    I have seen it before. I think that if I was in possession of the Everest film, I would just send it to Kodak for processing.

    But you can't send film to Kodak anymore! those mailers are defunct!

    I guess they would probably do it anyway. I wonder what combo they would use.

    Two years ago I had some Kodachrome dated 1986 processed using the original envelope which came with the film.

    I would expect them to take it on as a challenge (for no fee). Otherwise, Ilford would get to have a go at it.

    I just got a roll of Verichrome Pan in 620 dated from 1959. I'll shoot it in my Hawkeye Brownie. Also have a bulk roll of HP3 from July 1963. I bought it on a whim off eBay since that's my exact month and year of birth. Shot some at 25 and it came out alright!

    I love moominsean! He is the one that taught me how to clean my Polaroid negatives. I follow his flickr stream as well.

    I developed a roll that was exposed in 1959. It was exciting to get usable negatives from it. Although the content wasn't all that interesting, still it was great fun.

    Well I have several rolls of HP3 120 roll film that was exposed in 1952 and never developed! I did a clip test on one roll and managed to pull two images off the whole thing. It was badly fogged, the backing paper had merged with the film and had to be coaxed off, and I think it had caused a lot of chemical fogging. I will probably post a thread in the b&w section seeking ideas on how best to develop the other rolls. I also have some exposed, undeveloped glass plates from the same era.
