    I find it is HUGELY disrespectful to George Eastman the founder of KODAK. If you read the product description these reprints of one of George Eastman most famous portraits are printed on FUJI photographic paper. What on earth is this seller thinking??? Is it just me or does it seem totally wrong to print memorabilia images of George Eastman onto one of this largest competitors products?
    Kodak was once respected as one of the World's great sources of film, paper, equipment, and information. Maintaining such a position is not easy. George Eastman and Kodak were the masters of their fate; the captains of their souls. If they failed, and plotted a course that let other companies take the lead, they do not deserve the blind undying respect of their former customers. I am amused by the ironic choice of a competitor's product for reproducing Eastman's portrait.

    At least it's not an inkjet print.

    But it could have been on Kodak Inkjet Paper and perhaps a Kodak Inkjet Printer?

    Back in the '70s when the UK was in a recession rather like now, there was a buy British campaign. The factory I used to work at (and this is years before my time) got in on the act and handed out boxes of matches to all the workers. On the boxes where Union flags and 'buy British'. On the reverse, as clear as day, was written 'made in China'.

    Could this be on FUJIBROME B&W paper? I suspect that paper is long since discontinued. Was this paper ever imported to USA? How would LOC get this paper? Is this a print from the 1980s?


    I thought the title of this thread was because of a disrespect for Eastman for making a company that now ignores is film customers.

    Frontier machine will be printed on Fuji Crystal Archive digital paper obviously.

    Kodak has done such a great job telling everyone that they're now a B2B digital company that no one even knows they still make at least color printing paper in rolls... good job, guys

    Not a Lincoln. A Toyota.
