    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.
