Undeveloped Mount Saint Helens film recovered

METRO

VANCOUVER, Wash. – An undeveloped roll of film documenting the last days before Mount Saint Helens erupted 33 years ago is discovered at the Columbian newspaper.

The pictures were made days before the May 1980 eruption killed Columbian staff photographer Reid Blackburn.

The roll of film was misplaced in the newspaper’s archives before it was developed.

An archivist with the paper found the film earlier this month.
