filmnet
(455 items)

This was saved by my friend who worked in USM company then and retired in 1975 when it closed. He was the last photographer and had all cameras and negatives, a lot went to Washington Museums .The negative has red on the faces for 2 guys to print nice. They faces were too white so they painted red on the negative which will be gray on a B/W print.
