 It is an incredible set of photos taken during the Japanese attack against Pearl Harbor in December 1941 with a Brownie camera.

 

The film has just been exposed after remaining for nearly 68 years in the unit kept in a Foot Locker store. Imagine the emotion of the people in the lab during development of the film.
 
The photos are impressive. They were taken by a sailor from the USS Quapaw ATF-11O.
