Why are so many WW2 photos taken on base of vets developed on wrong side.Almost all of my family members studio type pictures have their shoulder patch on wrong shoulder and overseas cap tilted wrong way.Anyone noticed this before?
Old pictures developed on wrong side

Yes I had a discussion about this not too long ago. I think they were developed by civilians who didn't know any better or just didn't care....IMO

As a tinkering photographer that spent many hours in dark rooms, It's not always easy to see the details especially on the those small brownie sized prints, even more so if it is something you are unfamiliar with. The nice thing about using 35mm slides, is that we could just flip them around! But now in the mighty photoshop it just edit > transform > flip horizontal.
What gets me are the pics where the patch and medals side are almost deliberately not shown.
