Found Film! - A journey to discover location.

The results from a batch of film i bought from a boot fair, with one film being exposed, i got it developed!

So, back in summer 2011 i bought a batch of films from a boot fair, it was all 120 film, with some boxes of paper for prints. All of this for £3 = bargain!

It wasn’t until i got home, i realised that one of the films had been exposed. A Kodak T-max 400 in 120 format. This was quite exciting so i sent it off the lab, a little worried because i didnt know what was one it, but excited at the same time.
Results came back and i was pleased! I had an email from the lab saying they thought the photos were taken on a box camera.

First insight to the film – and i guessed it was London because of the bus in the background.

Next task was to discover the location in which the photos were taken.

A quick google search and I discovered that it was William Budd and Budd family mausoleum which was in Brixton in London. (so i had guessed the London bit correct!) And there just happened to be a clock tower behind the mausoleum – which was also on my roll, And is Lambeth Town Hall.

Unsure what this is – but its in the same area next to St Matthews church.
The last is the most exciting, Im still unsure where this photo was taken, but it reveals part of the person who took the photos – in the reflection of the doors.

Its a shame its not a full reflection!
Still to be decided on is also a date when these photos were taken!

    @ehmahh did you keep the paper backing? You may get a clue from the design or print as to a possible date range from that? Don't know, just a thought.
