Would be neat to see some of that. My Dad had a Bell and Howel wind up Regular-8 movie camera. He carried it in his flight bag sometimes. And of course home movies. Some pretty interesting footage there.

That is cool, thanks for sharing.
I'm seriously thinking of sending in some film,
My mother passed away last month, my sister and I are now cleaning out her house and we stumbled upon some old OLD (1940's early 1950's) undeveloped film, including some 8mm(?) movie rolls. I think there may be some my dad took in North Africa and Italy during the war, doesn't surprise me at all they were never developed because my dad never wanted to talk about the war, Also I suspect some are from when my mom and dad first got married right after WWII and they lived in Wyoming.
I just bookmarked the web site, I might contact the guy, Thank you.

Strange put often people dont devolved film or they leave behind negatives that no one marked whom or what. We have some from 90 years ago one 620 film a dead format . No one know whom they are . That the thing all to easy for info to be lost . I m guess even more so in the digal age becasue most people take them and don't do much more. Unlike the past were some might be written on , whats on a sd card may never be mark. Even sadder is sd cards will be replace sooner or latter with something else . Next to no one can read a floppy disk , let alone a back up tape from 10 years ago. When the format changes what happens to our past ?

I encourage you to send your film to him because he is one of the guys whom can develop right unlike modern film places. Needs to be treated diiferent plus you do get access to the pictures for free. win / win

I've been picking up old boxes of slides and other photos taken by US soldiers in Korea during the war there-they get picked up in Estate sales when no one in the family wants them, but there is incredible interest from people in Korea. Cameras in the hands of Koreans back then were very rare, so the only visual record of how their country was then are in these old photos in American attics. Color film was only just coming into use then, and still had to be sent back to Kodak for developing, so again, the only color photos are taken by Americans. Young Koreans,who have only known their country as a modern industrial nation, are stunned and amazed to see it as it was only 60 years ago. Several of my collections of original slides have gone to museums there.
Hong Kong is another example-the city has been transformed so much over the years that the casual tourist photos I took 43 years ago are now Historical documents, and there are numerous Facebook pages where old HK photos get displayed and commented on.
I found a metal box full of negatives after my Dad passed away a few years ago-they were photos taken when he was in England with the 8th AAF,on his base, and in the air during combat missions. Various FB groups were very happy to see these photos come to light again. I use a digitizing service called Digmypics.com-I've had very good luck with them.
