    I picked up an old can of this at an auction yesterday afternoon.
    Any good use for it? Anything special about it that would make me want to use it?

    It depends on what film you use and what format. Also, what type of final presentation you intrend to make - silver gelatin, enlarged, contact, alt processes, etc.
