Subject: Photo question

Written By: Ryan112390 on 11/18/10 at 9:45 pm

This photo was taken in August 1973. Not sure of the camera or any of that.
As you can see, it's one of those rounded edge photos. But if you look at the left edge of this photo, it looks like another photo begins within the main photo.
I have three other photos from the same day (though not necessarily the whole set, of course) and none of the others match at all the edge of this one.
Why would another photo be beginning at the edge of this one?

They cut the negatives in the machine wrong?

It is the edge of the same photo (judging by the railings and roof...on the far right of the photo). Not certain how it happened though...

That style of print reminds me of our old family photo albums from the seventies.  It also brings back memories to see a dude in Bermuda shorts and a wood panel-style station wagon that functioned as a family car, rather than an abandoned junker on cinder blocks!

Ah, the seventies, the seventies!

Cheap printing, take 'em back!

The photo was taken using 126 film...square negative produced square prints. The edge of another picture showing is due to the way the film was developed. During printing, the negative strip was not properly placed in the printer, causing the edge of the next picture in sequence to be printed on the same paper.
