    I have an Ilford lens shade on my Tower 51 (Iloca Rapid B) ... my contribution to keeping the tradition alive. :D

    Seriously, this looks like a very engaging book.

    that is funny.
    1969, the year that Ilford gave up exporting cameras was about the same time that I started seeing those strange White film boxes showing up among the Yellow here in the US.
    Any story behind that?
