Almost miraculous photographs survive picturing of the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor in 1941

Graphic photos of the bombing taken by a simple Kodak Brownie Box Camera

Recently a friend sent me an email which had some interesting photographs attached to it of the bombing that took place on Hawaii just prior to America’s entrance into World War Two. It is alleged that the photographs were taken by a sailor on a ship adjacent to the bombing by a Kodak Brownie camera. The camera was found fairly recently (2014?) and it was found that the film remained in excellent condition and the photographs that were developed from them were both of a very high quality and extremely unique. It is for these reasons I have elected to share them with you today.
