He always printed his stuff full frame. No cropping. Most people couldn't 
handle that. I'm sure sprocket holes  weren't punched as precisely as they 
are today. Or film gates let a bit more image circle hit the film. Wide 
lenses that have exit pupils close to the film would throw an image past 
the film gate a bit wider. Lot's of possible reasons.
