    You've posted this in the colour section, but I think you will probably find that it is a black & white film, possibly even an ortho one. Chrome or chrom as part of a film name often indicated it was a black & white film in the 1950's/60's and earlier eg Kodak Verichrome, Ilford Selochrome, Agfa Isochrom etc etc.

    Yes, it is a b&w film. From the 40's
    20 ASA and ortho-panchromatic

    The spelling is Superchrom.

    It's not an Ortho film, the word Chrome was added to show it had a wider Chromatic response, still not fully panchchromatic though.

    Verichrome dates back to around 1908/9 when it was released by Wratten & Wainwright, and the term was in constant use for B&W films until the demise of Kodak Verichrome PAn.

    I'd sugeest see-sawing it in a tray with D&^/ID-11, it's an easy technique when you don't have a tank that takes the film size.
