In this shot the operator has completed the developing and is pouring in the hypo or fixing bath, after which the film will be subjected to a water spray to wash it thoroughly. It is then fed on to the upper reel which it is thoroughly dried by means of a warm air stream." Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea. 1944
