In a word, yes!

As to developing, it may take some searching to find someone who can do
the developing. I ran into the same problem with some of my uncle's SP
4x5 negatives. If you can find someone with a big enough enlarger you
can make a carrier out of cardboard (that is what I did when I was in
school) to hold the negative.
