    I just found a roll of undeveloped film in my grandfather's things. (He died back in 1968) It looks like the roll was used, but never developed. Is is still possible to have it developed?

    It is a roll of Kodachrome Color Film - Type A - 20 Exposures - K135A - Artificial Light.

    Thank you in advance for you help!

    To my knowledge the only remaining USA lab that processes Kodachrome is
    Dwayne's. I don't know if they do Type A. Their contact info is here.

    Just a sec, Christina--I believe that's the old formula for Kodachrome and I don't believe that Dwayne's can do it. But then again, don't quote me on that! ;)

    I found a roll of Kodak 110 film that was exposed in 1977.

    What I got back looked like blank blue-gray prints. So I scanned them into photoshop and adjusted the contrast/brightness and revealed images that weren't necessarily usable but still distinguishable enough to cherish.

    You might pop onto APUG and see if there's either someone there who can do it, or someone who knows where to get it done.

    Dwayne's is the only lab in North America that processes Kodachrome (or is the the world now?)

    Dwayne's can not process this roll of film. They referred me to FilmRescue.com. They will process it as a B&W and then do a digital scan.

    It's $16 for the roll and $1.35 per print. If there are no images, they waive the processing fee.

    Interesting. Are you going to do it? I think it would be very interesting to see.

    Yes I'm going to send them the roll. I've already missed the deadline for them to be processed in June, so it will be processed in July and I'll receive the images (hopefully) in August. I'll post them on the blog I created for my grandfather's photos.

    Thanks for all the help everyone!
