Revisiting Analogue Pearl Harbor Shots

It has been 69 years since the grisly bombing in Pearl Harbor. Here's a brief look back at that pivotal moment in modern history through an analogue lens.

Are you a history buff? It’s always quite something to browse through crucial moments in history. These analogue photos taken during the bombing of Pearl Harbor back in 1941 are nothing short of breathtaking, taking you right in the thick of the action. You can view the whole gallery here. Even though the claim that these photos were retrieved and developed from an old Brownie camera found in a foot locker are false, the images are still quite a sight to behold. Check them out!

    Impressive indeed! And you're right, seems difficult to believe that the pictures were still in the camera for almost 70 years and developped just now... but they're great!

    My dad showed me this the other day, actually. I don't believe that film can last that long past its expiration date, especially if it has been exposed, but those are still pretty amazing shots.
