    60-year-old Leica negatives discovered

    Three years after my father died, my sister discovered a bunch of World War II negatives in a box, all exposed with my father's screw-mount Leica and three lenses while he was stationed in Italy. I printed all those that were in good condition, scanned some of them, and posted some at the following link. 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!

    Congratulations on a wonderful find. A truly magical Christmas present for you and your family.
    Let me ask you something. If the rule you followed brought you to this, of what use was the rule?

    I forgot to mention that Flickr requires clicking on each image to enlarge them for viewing; otherwise they are too small to see.

    Aside from the camera he used, your father had a good eye. Great stuff!

    Since many of the negs were in good shape; I'd be more curious to know which film he used?

    Re which films he used, click on each photo. That will not only enlarge them somewhat, it will also display my comments re each one that include the lens used and the film that was used as well.

    Thanks.

    Yes, great shots. Some of the pics of the local population etc. really capture a time and place. They remind me of scenes in early-1950's Italian cinemas.
