Boxing Practice

Boxing Practice

This is my great grandfather and my grandpa as a child practicing their boxing skills. I think this is sometime after WWII. I love the wide-screen film format. Scanned from an 11 X 7.5 CM negative. It doesn't say what brand. View full size.

116 film

This negative size was 116 roll film, very commonly used in Kodak Brownies for many decades. The large negative meant photo processors could run off snapshot-sized prints via contact-printing, eliminating the need for an enlarger in the operation. The ones in our family collection date from 1919 to my earliest baby photos in 1947. Later, around 1956, my brother experimented with the film using an old Kodak folding camera, and I did the same around 1962.
