    I came across about 50 8x11 black and white photographs. They seem quite old. The say across the bottom " A century of progress, Chicago 1933 Kaufmann --Fabry Official Photographers". Does anyone know about these or have any information about them for me? Thanks for your help.

    I worked for Kaufmann and Fabry in the 1970's. They're still around. The company and their archives -which are really great since the company has been a photographic company since the late 19th century-have been merged into K&S Photo Labs in Chicago.

    I was recently in an antique shop and found a small film box (with a big price tag...) It was printed in purple and orange on white and read "Official Souvenir Motion Picture Film, 1934 Century of Progress Exposition; Manufactured by Kaufmann & Fabry, Official Photographers, Chicago. 50 feet, 8mm, Safety Film." And inside was the film as described. This is a VERY early 8mm home-movie short subject release; predating Castle Films' Hindenburg newsreel (the first "hit" home-movie short) by several years. In fact, I believe 8mm itself had only been on the market a year and a half or so then. (I assume they had 16mm prints too.) So K & F were apparently also pioneers in the home-movie field too!
