That is amazing. Another reason why I love black and white film.

thats REALLY cool! shows how b&w film is the best way to archive an image, even one that hasn't been developed in 31 years!

i'm just wondering how that guy forgot about rolls like that? I mean, if I wen to a Dylan concert, I'd probably be processing the film as soon as I got home to the darkroom. Just me, but 31 years?

I wonder if Kodak has any stories like that, with say XX or Tri-x negs.

Agreed! This is cool and BW Film is the best way to archive and image. I seriously doubt digital files will survive for future viewing, but film has the potential to survive 100years + this is evident with some of the civil war photo's we can view today, in fact I think the oldest negative is from 1835, check http://www.edinphoto.org.uk/1_P/1_photographers_talbot_smm_latticed_window.htm, wonder if the digital files of today will still be usable in 2183?

If I remember well. He did take Tri-X too, and it came good. I don't seem to find a gallery or album with some of the shots, both HP5 and Tri-X. Maybe, he erased them a while ago.

Old Super-XX. That would be ultimate latent image keeping...

I wonder what the negatives look like. Hmm, I still have about 10 rolls of 72 exposure HP5 from the 80s is pretty fogged. Its been in a freezer since the 80s.
