It is not clear wheter the negativers were developped or not. They were found in a darkrom so that they may have finished 100 years ago.

Ah i posted a link discussing this same discovery. If you look at the official Antarctic trust site you can see the negatives frozen together in a clump. In another image you can see a technician peeling apart the stuck together layers in full light leading me to think these were developed already and just stored.

Thanks -- there was some confusion about it on different news outlets. Looks to be processed negatives that were found.

The oldest roll I processed, was colour, Telcolor iirc, 50+ years iirc. It worked out, old wedding photos, had blotchy spots on the film though.
