This is a huge collection of photos from a single photographer, and starting on August 24th, 2015 I will add photos over the next few months.

2 Louisiana Patriots | Case #025

The Film
A single roll of Kodacolor-II Film, 120mm format on a 620mm spool. A film popular in the 1970’s and 1980’s. The camera is unknown but the focus in the photos is spot on the subject. Knowing that, it was likely not a box camera like a brownie, but a Kodak endorsed model, due to the 620 spool.

The Roll was purchased out of New Orleans, Louisiana

The Photos
Only two images turned out. It looks like in the next frame the shutter jammed, and then at a much later date the film was rolled up and removed safely enough to save these.

The first frame was so close to the to the beginning of the roll, where the film meets the paper backing with a piece of tape, that I cut part of the image when separating them in the darkroom. I remember thinking, “There’s going to be an image here, I just know it!”

Luckily nothing crucial was lost.

This seems like a quick portrait before they go off to a ceremony or parade. These guys look like war veteran’s, which war I couldn’t tell you, perhaps several. But, this does look like the 1980’s, based on the two tone car parked to the right. Kodacolor-II was made in this format after 1974, and the format was popular in the early 1980’s.

I wish I could see more of the flag, the man on the right is holding. I can make out “_____ln City” and what I guess to be “American world [something]” or “American [something] world”.

You can see the focus is good, but not enough to really make out the insignia or lettering on their uniforms.

 

South Portland Fourth of July Parade | Case #017

The Film

Kodak Gold 800. Not a lot of colour fading. The film isn’t anymore than 15 years old by this estimate alone.

The Camera

Unknown. Likely a point and shoot camera.

Summary

Images look 10 to 15 years old. The quality of the film has not faded than much. Images were taken in South Portland Maine on the Fourth of July.
