Found Film Friday: Portraits with Grandma

This week’s found film was inside a camera – a Kodak Brownie Target Six-20, as seen below.

Kodak Brownie Target Six-20

This camera was manufactured between 1946 and 1952 and sold for three and a half bucks. It gets its name from the film it used – 620 film, a variant of 120 film, basically just on a thinner spool. 120 film is still available today and can be easily spooled onto a 620 spool. In other words, this camera can still be used to take pictures.

I’m guessing the photos on this roll were taken well after the original manufacture date. Mainly I’m guessing that from the hairstyle of the girl in these photos, which remind me of junior high in the late 1970s. Have a look at the old yearbooks!

I’m assuming this is a granddaughter and two different grandmothers?  Not sure what is on the front of the girl’s dress – it doesn’t look symmetrical.  And I’m guessing the film was only partly used, which is why the bottom half of the last picture was ruined.
