VEF Minox NegativesCan You help?
Both films belong together. They were found 20 years ago in Barrowlands
antique markets in Glasgow. So they may or may not have an association
with Scotland. Both were stored uncut in their original VEF Minox 10/10
film tin. The second film was rolled very tightly and thus suffered the
most damage. In the second film, there is a picture of a cathedral
(Pic.4), two officers are wearing a clearly visible shoulder badge
(Pic.2-3), and one officers hat has a recogniseable badge (Pic.10). The
pictures from overseas contain some iconic buildings. They are all
located at the waterfront, Apollo bunder (Wellington Pier) in south
Mumbai (Bombay), India. They include the Gateway to India, The Taj
Mahal Palace Hotel and the Royal Bombay Yacht Club (Pic.30-33)
