    Experimental Emulsion Lab (old photo)

    Attached is a photo of an experimental Emulsion Lab. Note the water bath, stirrers and dropper funnel.

    If there is any interest in more emulsion related photos from this era I'll post more.

    They are from an old textbook on photography. Some of the photos credit Kodak, others have no credit so their origin is unknown.

    Can you please give details of the book you got these from? It might have some material worth looking into.

    Thanks,

    The book is called "The Science of Photography" by H.Baines (Fountain Press). It is a book written for the "layman" however I have found it useful.

    I have seen that this book is available from Abebooks. (They have copies for approximately $3). Mine was published in the 50's.

    Kodak 1920's

    1. Nitric Acid production

    2. Emulsion Production

    3. Slitting motion picture film

    "Moving Pictures", Talbot, 1924.

    (Sorry, I had to convert them to JPG for them to show up as thumbnails-- poor scans of yesteryear to boot!)

    The middle picture, AFAIK, is a picture of buckets of raw silver nitrate crystals. It probably isn't emulsion due to the covers on the containers.

    My, I have not seen these for years. Some of them are on the corridor walls at Kodak Park.
