This is my newest discovery.  What is it, you ask?  Let me show you the inside.....

That's film strips rolled up and put into each little case.  It's hard to see but written on the paper on the top of the box describes what is in each section.  The dates are all in the mid 1940's which means these are photos my dad took.  Several of the rolls are from Europe so I'm guessing he took a lot of this while he was serving in the military.  One of the rolls is marked Nuremberg - my dad reported from the trials for a few days.  How organized can someone be?

Here's what the film looks like when unrolled.

So what do I do with it?  Anyone have any ideas about how to get the film developed?  I know I can go to a camera shop but I thought maybe someone has seen something like this before.

  1. My dad took all the reels of 8mm film that had been taken with Grandpa Austen's wind-up camera, went through them all, spliced together the segments that had our family in them, and took them to a photography shop in Riverside. At that time, he had all that he had put together transferred onto VHS tape. It's since been made into DVDs. So ... I'd say you should find a good camera/photography shop and see if they can turn all this into a really good DVD. I'd imagine that it'd take only one DVD, and then you can make copies if you want.
