Post Nuclear Family at The Holiday Inn | Case #064

These three rolls of 120 film were recovered from Freeport Illinois. A couple were labelled, and in original packaging, so we know that the rolls of film themselves expired in 1970.

Roll One: Verichrome Pan Exp. September 1970
Labeled: “Coldwell”

Missing Portrait Photos | Case #027

About the Film

An off brand of colour film called “Photoworks”. That’s also the name of a film processing company based out of San Francisco. Not much to go on, but it’s a start.

What struck me more than anything else is how good they were in their composition for the majority of the photos. I also suspect that a good Camera and lens combination was used.

Pretty gutsy trying to hand hold a moon photo, the last one isn’t horrible.

These portraits are really good, especially the kids and the dog.

QuikSilver is a company based out of California, but has stores everywhere, not much to go on here.

Summary 

Not much to go on here. There is a bridge off in the distance of the first couple photos that may help narrow it down.
