    I was given 6 Ilfochrome kits with a group of darkroom chemicals. The photographer hadn't used his darkroom in 3 years. And he referred to the chemicals as "old". I'm a B&W photographer. Any suggestions on what to do with these kits. Should I play with them or find them a home?
    Thanks,
    Anne

    I would find them a home. They may still be good, but will not be forever. Post some more details and maybe someone can give you an estimate on the age.
