    Old Magazines

    Picked this one up the other day for $2 US. 1948 Popular Photography (25cents), Darkroom Edition. I sure love looking at the ads and it's amazing to see how much has not changed (for those sticking with traditional photography). Those were the days huh?

    hehe! At our camera club they have a rack of magazines for browsing and some of them are quite old. I too like the adverts. I bought some '91-'93 Camera & Darkrooms the other day.

    I also was browsing some '98ish mags recently and who was the boss... Ailsa!

    With you on this one A local store quite often has copies of Picture Post Magazine, from the early 50's up until it added colour. When I have the time I look through their latest batch and buy the ones I like for just under the equivalent of $2 each.

    As you say some of those ads look very familiar LOL

    I have a collection of the US Camera Annuals and quite a few copies of camera mags from the 50s. Very cool to look.

    I have a copy of "Photography for Novices - The Primus Handbook" from 1902 and it also contains an Agfa (The Actien Gesellschaft fur Anilin Fabrikation) ad whoch describes Rodinal as "the most powerful and simplest developer ever offered. For all sorts of work".

    I'm different again... I've got "der Satrap" from 1934. Amazingly good quality prints!
