The rare filmstrip present here hints that the format was used around the world. Already archeoloGIFts are on the look out for other caches of this rare film. The film can at first glance be easily mistaken for other formats, overlooked or discarded.
Modern GIFaChrome artist Rochelle Lockridge who has done much to popularise the format was unavailable for comment at time of writing, her work on the recent history of the GIFaChrome Camera is essential reading for those interested in the format. We hope to have a triple-troll-quote from Rochelle later today.
