    100-year-old photos found in antique cameras (sic)

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.

    That's a really great find. The pictures look to be in great shape.

    I believe that it is a twin lens reflex camera or a stereo camera without earphones.

    Wait: it says the buyer opened the camera and found the pictures 'already developed.' Huh? Who puts developed film back in the camera? Some old mail-order developing scheme?

    The first instant film camera. It predated Polaroid.

    This has me quite puzzled. Why put developed film back in the camera? They're clearly negs, so you're not going to view it in there or something.

    I could imagine maybe the film printed-out after a century maybe? But it'd still need fixing.

    These images were actually discovered by APUG member Anton Orlov, when he opened up a Jumelle Bellieni stereo camera he found at an L.A. area antique store. These cameras have a magazine that can hold several glass plates and apparently the previous owner stored a set of fully-developed plates in the camera before putting it away in storage, possibly to keep the plates from being damaged. It seems that the camera has remained in storage ever since.

    Anton runs a rental darkroom facility here in San Diego called Rollov Film Center, and recently converted a school bus as a mobile darkroom facility to tour the country and spread the word about analog photography.

    I read an article, I can't remember where, that said that later users of that particular camera sometimes used negatives (are they glass?) as a backing to help keep flexible film flat.
