WWII filrm recovered and processed

Thought this might be enjoyed by others ....
Always love when old film is discovered - it's like an unopened treasure chest.
The painstaking process yielded a true treat.
Hope the link works:

Cindy, as the sticky says in General talk, photography doesn't belong in there. Moved to General Photography forum.

That's pretty amazing stuff. It's a wonder he's able to pull anything at all off of 70-year-old undeveloped film. That's a great bit of preservation work.

Yes it is. I like how he can scan otherwise nearly indiscernible image on the negative and pull up details.
Plus I get caught in wondering about the people in the pictures. Where they were stationed, what they went through overseas, did they come back home?

I also find myself wondering about the photographer, who he or she was and what happened that the film was just stored away and never developed. A single roll left in a camera is one thing, but 31 rolls!?!

Yes! Was there a name on the note that tells us who this photographer was _what's their story... I would love to know.
There were, also, some nicely composed images - the stone wall and canal, the curve of the tracks with all the soldiers lined up, the rear view shot of them walking away, etc ...
