This is a roll of Kodak Gold 400 with some light leak damage and fading from age.
Dates range from June to July, 2007.
To me, this seems like southern Alberta or British Columbia.
His shirt says Property of Molson Canadian Light
Hat says Canada and you can just barely see someone else to the right in the light leak.
There may have been more photos, there’s 22 in total here, but the first image is damaged as the result of the back of the camera being opened at some point. The rest will have been spared from already being in the roll.
On the poster, it says Louveteaux, which is cub in French. So this is likely the Cub Scouts in a predominantly French speaking part of Canada. That doesn’t 100% mean Quebec, but narrows it down.
Happy Birthday Antoine
Chicago White Sox shirt
The wall hanging upper right says The Court of King Arthur. Left of that a little mouse that says kiss me, hanging from a brass engraving of a sailboat.
Looks like Antoine gets his birthday right around Christmas.
Even though the tree is up, I get the feeling this is present opening for his birthday.
CD’s and Vinyl in this photo and previous shots. Both the white and yellow pages in the accessible spot. Amp with cassette player. This could be about the year 2000.
This lego set he has here is called Jack Stone, and thanks to a quick check on Brickopedia, it was a set that only saw the light of day between 2001 and 2003.
A portrait. I know hard to tell but there’s two people on the left.
His birthday gift all set up.
The game is called Freddy, but I’m not sure what that’s supposed to do……ooooh, catch flying fish. 🙂
Shrek also came out in 2001. Antoine’s brother looks very happy with his gift. Antoine, not so much 😉
Possible camera malfunction here.
Two for two, the older brother nails it with an Orange County Choppers set. VHS and DVD in the background. Definitely before 2005, but after 1999.
I laughed when I saw this, poor guy. He’s got X-Men jambes on and someone dropped a Winnie the Pooh Colouring Book in his lap. I smell a gift from Grandma.
The people or photographer have been identified and any updates will appear as a video link below.
A half frame here shows a computer, and tack wall.
There’s a lot in just this photo and the next one to narrow down the date.
Most importantly on the tack board is a calendar that says March, but I can’t make out the year. However, it starts on a Wednesday, which could indicate 2006.
There are masks, photos, and other stuff but I can’t quite make it out.
For some reason she has a tonne of scissors.
One of these two might be the photographer.
Her, shirt says “taylor University College, which is in Edmonton, Alberta. You can also see knitting, some multicoloured pens and a contact lens case.
The book is called “The Lineage of Grace” by Francine Rivers, and was published in 2002. I think the photos belong to the girl in the glasses.
You can see the young woman with the glasses wearing these slippers in the shot with her friend reading the book.
There’s an indigo that has a similar front entrance in Edmonton
About the Film
The woman on the right with the man and the other looking over look like sisters. This is very likely a gathering involving a lot of friends.
Pop can says Co-op, doesn’t narrow it down.
It’s outdoors and nighttime, but everyone is glistening like it’s boiling outside, so we can probably rule out Canada.
Two cakes! One has blue icing, one had red.
The last two images are the camera being discovered in a thrift store. Someone is checking to make sure it works. You’ll notice the quality is much better in these last two images. That’s because this lady opened the back, fogging the rest, then she took a couple of shots to see if it worked. After that the film rewound and it was saved.
