As reported in an earlier post, I was fortunate enough to find an old Kodak Duaflex II camera with an exposed roll of film. I jumped at the chance to purchase the camera and was hoping I could rescue the film and process it. I was not disappointed.
I identified the film as an old roll of Kodak Verichrome Pan black and white negative film. I had developed plenty of 120 black and white film but, never film this old. I could not find any developing information on it. There were developing times for Kodak D-76 and Microdol - X on the films label but, I use HC-110 as a developer and I was not sure on how and if the HC-110 would work.
I turned to a resource that is readily available to everyone with an internet connection. I posted on Photrio.com, formerly known as APUG.com. This photography forum specializes in analog photography, all aspects of film photography. Sure enough, within a few minutes a helpful member responded with a developing time of 8 minutes. I used dilution B which is one part developer to 39 parts water.
Judging from the cars in the background, I estimate these photos to be from the late 50s to early 60s. Whenever they were taken it looks like they had a great time at the beach! I will always look for film to rescue in the future. I hope I am as lucky to find something these images agian.
