    A 1940's Shop-keeper on the annual 1940's Severn Valley Railway re-enactment weekend -- I used my Islolette III with the 75mm f3.5 Solinar lens, 2007 dated Ilford XP2 400 Super rated at 250 ASA and weak flash from a Miranda 630CD unit, 1/100 at f16. I did a 16x12" darkroom print for my Club and won an award !

    Thanks ! I did not know how to get rid of the 'strange Colour' from the scanned XP2 super at first but I have found out now !
