Country Stores 14: Wagner Grocery, Church Hill, Mississippi, in the heat with Ektar 25 film
This is a continuation of my irregular series on country stores and no. 02 in my irregular series on Abandoned Films ("Films from the Dead?).
It was almost 95° F. one typical day last summer; I had received my Rolleiflex camera back from repair and wanted to test it. Where to go? Well, Church Hill, on Rte. 533 south of Alcorn State University, had an old country store, so off I went. It was also a good opportunity check some long-expired Kodak Ektar 25 film. This was one of the finest-resolution color print films ever made, and I still had 5 rolls in the freezer.
