NBC NEWS - An undeveloped roll of film from 33 years ago resurfaced at The Columbian newspaper in Vancouver, Wash., with never-before-seen photos of Mount Saint Helens days before it erupted.

The pictures are part of northwest history and were taken before The Columbian photographer Reid Blackburn died in the May 1980 eruption.

A week later, Blackburn was killed in his vehicle while covering the eruption.
