This image was processed and developed from a roll of undeveloped film that I found in an old brownie camera I purchased from a thrift store in the early 2000’s. It’s an image most likely from the 1950’s, but it’s hard to know for sure. There’s no way to tell who the original photographer was, but I’m the person who found, processed, and preserved the image.
