Tamara said: Hello everybody. Thisis not a comment on the article but a question I think some of you might beable to help me with.I have a booklet ofblack and white photos that has come down to me from my parents. The photos init were all processed in one batch (they all have the same number on the back).They were then assembled into one of those cute little old-fashioned cardboard"books". But the photos are clearly not in the order in which theywere taken: there are three distinct environments, and it's funny but they areordered almost randomly - also I should add that the way in which the photosare set into the book makes it quite possible that a processing techniciansimply slapped them into the booklet in any old order. Or maybe the picturesfell out of order and were picked up and replaced willy-nilly.Later photo booklets became more "mechanized", with prints clearly ordered in sequence and mechanically assembled. This one really looks like it was done by hand, picture by picture..I'd love to have confirmation of my theory or new ideas on the subject. Thanks!!
