Useen Images of President Dwight D. Eisenhower from a Roll of Film Discovered in California

According to PetaPixel, there are 7 recently never-before-seen photos of former US President Dwight D. Eisenhower were found on an undeveloped roll of film from California by The Rescued Film Project, who also found 31 rolls of undeveloped film that was shot by a World War II soldier back in January.

“I don't know for sure where I acquired the roll of film or how long it has been in my backlog,” photographer Levi Bettwieser, the founder and film technician behind The Rescued Film Project, told PetaPixel. “Odds are that I purchased it in some kind of online auction and came from California. I don't keep track of cities from which I get film, just states and countries.”

The film roll was Kodak brand, medium format, and unlabeled. It wasn't until he scanned the film into his computer that he realized who the photos contained.

“Only seven of the images on the roll are of this scene, the others include a picture of a little girl riding a giraffe on a merri-go-round, a baby with a stroller, and men playing some kind of card game,” he says.

Here are the seven photographs of Eisenhower that were on the roll:
