I was diving off Stoke Beach nr Plymouth (UK) with my brother... some 40 years ago now ...when our inflatable started to sink.
The only camera I had was a box brownie type device...may even have been a genuine example, I dont know..anyway it was floating around in the boat and filled with water and we had to pour the sea-water out of it once we got ashore. We sent the film off to the lab more in hope than expectation but got the reply...sorry your results are not too good... this can happen if your film gets damp !!
So hats off to Mr Eastman... or his collaborater...the first unintentional underwater shots.Eat your heart out Jacques !!

(Brownies are the name of junior girl scouts, aged 7 - 10)

I don't know how Craig fits into a junior girl scout's uniform!

Truly, but I felt the term "English to English" was funny

Thanks for the translation, Craig. I needed it.
For me Brownies are camera's or chocolate cakes. Didn't know about the girl scouts..
