Vintage Japanese negatives (batch 4)
Here is batch 4 of my Japanese negative series together with the original folder they were placed in around 85 years ago.
Notice the lovely picture of the Rollei’s on the front. I’m sure these packets will be collectible in their own right one day?
This may be my last batch for a while as the price of these vintage negatives have gone through the roof. Luckily I purchased a few before this happened as i’m not prepared to pay silly money.
A recent pack of 30 negs went for nearly $1000! Too rich for me.

I think the negatives are in remarkably good condition and scan pretty well considering their age.
I love looking at their clothes which I suspect were quite fashionable in their day. We always wear our sunday best to be photographed!
It’s strange to think that if this baby were 1 year old then they would be around 85 if they were alive today?
I just love this street scene and the way the lady on the right is hanging on to her child!
One very proud mother and grandmother.
