This is a series of old negatives found in an envelope in a box of photographs at a junk store in Dewey, Oklahoma. Some seem related, others do not. Most are damaged in some way and/or poorly executed in the camera and in the dark room. Many are over- exposed. Some needed a great deal of adjustment just to find an image.
To try to make some sense of the group, all were scanned so that obscure details might be revealed and maybe connect them.
If you have any suggestions or identifications let me know in a comment.
Thanks for looking at these.
Often old negatives are discarded but these survived for what looks like 70 years. Negatives never have something "written on the back" for identification so these remain a mystery.
Right now the only identifiable one is the street shot of the Arch de Triomphe in France. They rest are unidentified.
If you have any ideas about any of these add a comment.
