    I just wanted to share this great community darkroom in Providence, RI for those of you around here that don't have a darkroom or don't have space to ever build one. It's an awesome place. AS220, Paul Krot Community Darkoom

    We donated two enlargers and some darkroom equipment to AS220 when we were getting ready to move. Good space & people.
