After This Man ‘Develops’ Negatives Bought At A Boot Sale For £4, The Internet Identifies That They’re Over 100 Years Old

Published 4 months ago

When browsing wares at a local boot sale, retired graphics artist Greg Pack was hoping to find some old clocks, but instead stumbled upon something a lot more interesting – an old wooden box full of old glass negatives.

Greg knew a thing or two about glass negatives from working in print and recognized them to be in a rather good shape. Using his phone’s camera and a little Photoshop, he managed to turn the negatives into recognizable photos. His son Scott then tweeted the images asking the internet if anyone might recognize the family or a possible date when the pictures were taken. It turned out the images were taken in France over a hundred years ago!

Check out the whole story and the restored images in the gallery below!
