Alvin’s Film Follies (Part VIII – Playing with Some “Gold”)

What an odd roll of film to discover in my son’s bedroom – Kodak Gold 200?!  I found this odd because:

  1. It is ASA 200.  I’m used to seeing and using either 100 or 400 consumer films.  I guess 100 speed doesn’t exist for consumers anymore…
  2. It is a Kodak consumer film that I don’t normally use (as you may know that I normally used Fujifilm in the past),
  3. I don’t recall buying this film for my son.
  4. It was in a 3-pack.

The Toronto Club

The Toronto Club ( at the corner of York and Wellington Streets.)  Founded in 1837, this is the oldest private club in Canada.  The building, itself, was opened in 1889.

Well I think the title of this blog post says it all.  But I do have a story to tell about this film, if you are willing to read on (and enjoy perusing the photos).
