    Darkrooms in New England

    Hi Guys- I was just wondering how many people on here still have operational darkrooms in New England. I am in Mass. in the New Bedford area and I have a darkroom that will hopefully have a new sink hooked up soon. In my sink, I can print up to 20x24 prints and I can handle up to 4x5 film. I only work with black and white as of right now.

    Fully operational in Pawtucket. Still have one at work too, but it's not very busy these days.

    A well known art school. When I say not too busy, I mean no activity what so ever, but I can't bring myself to give it up yet.

    Well that is most unfortunate. Maybe some kind of marketing would help?

    My darkroom is set up with three enlargers, one set up for 35mm, the other medium format, (both omega c760s) and the last an Omega D5 with dichro head for 4x5 and anything else. Film and prints get washed in the bathroom or kitchen sink. I'm doing only black and white prints right now as well.

    Got a jobo for doing color and lots of old e-6 chemistry when I feel like lugging it out. Only thing I really wish to add is a dry mount press. Anybody got one they don't need? Cheap?

    In NH, Vermont and Western MA

    I have a complete darkroom in my home, plus I am partly responsible for the rental one at Vermont Center for Photography.
    I know of at least 4 other private darkrooms which are in western NH, Vermont and western MA.
    Plus there are a few darkrooms at NH institute of Art in Manchester.

    I'm in New Hampshire. I have a personal one in which I do both color and black and white film and paper development. 16x20 is my general max size, but I can do 20x24 in drums or trays.
