About This Film
This is a 24 Roll of Fujicolor Superia X-Tra 35mm film purchased out of Windham, Maine. There are a total of 27 images.
This entire set takes place out on the water, on a sailboat, just off the coast of what could be Maine. Also, the photos are date stamped January 9th, 1998.
This could be a touring boat. It’s sunset, and there’s a lot of people on board.
The Adidas hoodie could confirm the date stamp. The girl’s hoodie in the back can’t be read in total. Something-Nation ap-something. The pepsi can has a logo on its side a well, but I can’t tell what for. Looks like an “N”.
Some great shots of the sun setting.
Not a single man in the group, I didn’t even notice at first. Lots of happy faces, and people from a wide range of age and background. People are super friendly and posing for more than one photo. This could have been the wrap up to some kind of larger project. I get the impression new friends were made.

About the Film
There’s 40 frames crammed onto this 36 roll of Kodak Gold 400-6, I really was quite surprised. Right away from look of the negatives after processing, you can tell they’re old, at least 20 years.
I came across this roll of film while in Seattle Washington, in August 2014.
You can see right from the beginning of the roll, a useful shot was taken. The car could be 80’s or 90’s. I’m pretty sure that’s a map on their dashboard.
Some nice photos of the countryside.
The computer off to the side is very mid 1990’s. The calendar is overexposed and I can’t make out a date. There’s a game on the desk: mancala, which is a type of board game. Doesn’t help me narrow the date down, as possibly hundreds of versions of this popular game exists.
Some photos behind this kid include a vintage car, early 20th century, a house, a farm silo, a man silhouetted by steam or smoke, and a piece of farm equipment in what could be snow. There’s a respectable book collection which seems to include some thick textbooks.
The wall art looks tribal. The desk calendar just says “16”. Thanks calendar.
Photos of the home, family and what’s likely a nearby park. The boat anchor in the park could be a clear indicator of where this was shot. The cars and their condition still leave this in the 1990’s, probably earlier rather than later.
An overexposed shot
A strong pose for a clown. Also, more photography on the walls. Could be the home owners work.
Photos from a kid costume party, and we can safely assume it’s near halloween. This could be at a school or community hall.
Finger, in the last few shots, and a change of scene. This looks like a choir, keep in tune with what time of year it is, this may be Christmas now. I see a star on the window, and maybe snow outside?
The photos are underexposed and pretty far away. You can see someone video taping in the crowd in one shot and the camera looked big.
Not a tonne to go on with this roll, even though it’s the most exposures I’ve seen fit on a 36 roll. Early 1990’s, and I see no reason why this isn’t in or near Seattle.
Fine grain colour film. Unknown what kind, the film isn’t labeled except “200n p90”
Judging by the clothes, it’s probably the 1990’s
Says “Motel & Saloon” Could be a historical sight
Update: September 26th, 2014
Thanks to Daniel and Trevor for informing me that this is the Saloon Hotel at the Silver Star Resort in Vernon, BC!
Canadian flag in the background. These photos were likely taken in the Canadian Rockies.
A single roll of Kodak Plus-X 125 35mm film
This looks like a simple family gathering at Roy Roger’s Restaurant in the mid 1990’s. My guess on the date is based on the clothing of the times, and the fact that they’re in a smoking section.
It’s hard to tell who’s the camera owner, because the camera is passed around to at least three people.
Kodak APS type cameras.
These images were taken in 1999 at two separate times. The first looks like a Boy Scouts of America event with parents and kids, the other is a few snaps on what is likely Halloween night.
