Object Description
Silver Kodak 16mm film reel which is about half-full of film. The film appears as a silver color, possibly meaning that it has suffered some damage. Stamped into the metal reel are the words "Made in U.S.A.", "By Kodak", "Not for camera use", and "Pat. USA 2,384,621 Canada 1946". There are holes in the same pattern on both metal discs. Discs are attached at their center by a black, metal cylinder. It is unknown what the film on the reel contains. A single orange piece of paper is attached to the front of the reel with tape. The piece of paper appears to have the word "Cluos" written on it. Underneath this word are five tally marks.
16mm film was invented by the 1923 by the Eastman Kodak company as a cheaper, amateur alternative to 35mm film. It was originally intended to be used to make movies in one's home, but eventually began to be used for filming educational programs. Additionally, 16mm film was used in poorer foreign countries before they had access to professional light cameras.
