Jane passed me over Phil Ellis' negatives to scan. He was the Traffic Warden for Clevedon for some years and carried a small camera with him when he was on duty. Anything of interest to be seen and he took pix.
I have started with the 126 film, probably taken with a Pen auto exposure camera like the one I have. The negatives strip are in 4's and will just fit into the 35mm carrier of my 4870 scanner although it trims the top by about 6.5%.
I think maybe the film was old because it requires quite a lot of twiddling - Contrast and Colour Saturation-wise when editing. Results are not too bad though

Odd how folk don't realise that things change so fast. The older generation dies out and their vocabulary dies with them. Names of places change, slang or idiom alters. Words get forgotten.
