Very difficult to get a clear image from, but, they need to be flipped horizontally ... look at the bottom of the cardholder. ' KODAK SAFETY'  is backward.

I think you might notice that I did flip them horizontally : Could you scan each one at a higher resolution separately. MIGHT get a bit better result.

This is what I get after using a few processes (enlarged). I haven't cleaned any of the larger marks.I think the surface of the negative has badly deteriorated

OK, sorry. It was a guess

Actually if you think its a 3 on the end 1963 would kind of fit , looking at the age of my Dad on photo .

I've just been playing with it and, it's definitely a 3 and probably  63.  The clothes and lady's hairstyle are 1963-ish too.

I remember those hairstyles  ;D

1963 from me as well. Skirts much longer a decade earlier, mid-calf.

The labels on the bottles would be a good clue if they could be read. And the number of bottles! It seems to have been a very busy bar. And the lady in the apron. Who is she?  Does she work on the premises?

Hello , given the year of 1963 , I would guess the resort is either the Costa's { Lloret or Tossa } or Benidorm . I think I would like to get the negatives developed , any ideas please ?
