I’ve been duped.

Finally a post that gets some attention and it turns out to be a scam….My last post on the amazing Brownie  Camera photos is a hoax, and I was scammed by a relative to boot.  If you saw the amazing Pearl Harbor photos that were have said to be in camera for 69 years, you were as impressed as I was.  I have developed old film before, even that old and was able to pull images.  When I checked on Snopes I referenced “harbour” as this is how the info came to me.

Apologies to all, (including the several emails and even phone call at home to alert me) we’ll be more careful next time, though I”m still a fan of the camera and the power and potential of old preserved imagery.

    Don’t feel too bad, I believed that email too. It took me about three days to finally get around to checking it out on snopes.
