    Couple of odd ones mixed in?
    Don't know what the deal is with those.
    But those ones out of Italy are beautiful.

It is so interesting seeing what old Leica lenses could successfully capture in terms of sharpness, definition, and tonality as well as what films from that period could do!

    Truly awesome. Some great shots. Also a testment that 60 years later you can still print the negatives.

    The one of Benito Mussolini may be historically significant. Has a similar picture ever been taken?

    Some of these are amazing. Makes one wonder if "progress" has really been made in the modern era with regard to imaging. :-)
    Thank you for sharing your find.
    Sincerely,
    Jed

    I forgot to mention that all the other images on my Flickr pages 2 through 4 (those not labeled 'WW II" and other than the studio image of my father and the park image of my mother holding my father's Leica) are mine, captured with my Leica equipment since I bought M and R bodies and lenses.

    Beautiful. Your dad had a great eye! What a find.
    If I had been present at the creation, I would have given some useful hints for the better arrangement of the Universe.

    The box the negatives were found in had no contact sheets, so when I printed each negative it was like opening individual treasure chests! Additionally, my dichroic enlarger performed beautifully in terms of holding back dust and scratches! Also, today's darkroom chemicals printed each neg so easily compared to the chemicals my dad used in the 1950s, when it was hard to get dark blacks. What a joy it was printing all 30+ negatives!
