Old film canister

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Dirck Halstead : One Thread

Hello, I work in a one hour photo lab and a gentleman brought in an old film canister and asked if we could develop it I told him no, but he insisted I try. Well nothing came out of course but I would like to find out how old the canister is. It is a heavy metal canister and the writing on it says, "this cartridge reloaded with PANCHROMATIC FILM approx. 50 weston 36 exposures Rochester laboratory INC rochester N.Y." He had found the film in his barn and thought maybe it was from WWII or older any info would be helpful. Thank you!! Kari
