Photographer discovers WW1 photos in vintage camera

San Diego resident Anton Orlov paid $100 (£62) for the vintage 1901 Bellini Jumelle camera, but while cleaning it he found he had purchased much more than a camera.

There were eight developed photographs inside the casing depicting scenes from the First World War including planes, ruins and even a bomb.

Orlov currently has no plans to sell the pictures, saying: “I'm just happy to put them out there after them being hidden in a camera for 100 years. I'm just happy to see people enjoying them.”
