I bought an old Rolleicord I Model 2 in New York recently. The camera was beat to hell and sadly useless. But it came with two exposed rolls of film. I assume the film was shot in the Rollei, but I could be wrong.


Families are the backbone of any culture and we Americans great examples of that. I don't know the people in these photographs and neither do you. You know people like them though and that's what makes these previously unshared photographs important.


There is a thread that binds us all together. It's the thread of the family, for better or for worse. When I find long lost undeveloped film I feel privileged. I get a peek into someone's life.

This photo is particularly strange. I can't imagine how it could come from a Rolleicord but what do I know of the past ?
