The rest of Box 45, 1948


There are 9 negatives left in box 45. The majority is photographed at College of the Pacific, sometime during Spring 1948.

The first negatives I came across are playing in an elementary school, we can’t be sure what the occasion is, possibly a show-and-tell. The teacher might be a friend of Joel, or Joel misplaced another photoshoot negatives in this box.

In both images, the same girl is on a chair.

From elementary school we jump to a class at the College of Pacific. Looks tasty.

We’re switching to the physics lab, we’ve seen a similar take few blog posts back, so yet another misplaced negative.

This was followed by two natural light portraits of most likely a COP/SJC student.

The last images were printed and both appeared in Naranjado 1948, Joel has many images in this edition, but he didn’t receive any credit.

That’s it for today. I wouldn’t be surprised if we find more image leading to above subjects in later boxes. Things got mixed up over 75 years !

Cheers !
