    I quickly went through Yurow's list and only 1 paper from Lumiere is mentioned and it appears to be misspelled.
    (Lugla should be Lugda ?)

    Anyhow, I think the French Photographic organization I can't remember
    the name of/cannot pronounce, would be a good door to knock on.

    Or is there a French sector APUG? Maybe posting there would do the trick.

    Ray,

    you could check the french section - maybe someone there can give you more help. I was thinking along the lines that Yurow might have more info on his hands that he had not had time to share on the 'net. I love this detective work with older papers, finding out new things about old stuff...

    Someone mentions the name Megaltra on this photo: http://www.flickr.com/photos/francoisthomas/6471439885/

    Thanks Jerevan.
    I will look into that.

    I see the flickr poster might have some info, but I cannot figure out how to contact him without joining myself
    which I do not want to do.

    I might try the other suggestion...
    I have never been there. Is there a French only rule?

    Hi Ray,

    Sorry, it's a little late for reviving this thread.

    (But that might might be my English language wired brain speaking....)
    Thanks for the joke complete explanation Remind me a little the ITLAPD (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Interna...e_a_Pirate_Day) !

    What I hope we can find is someone who has a guide book for French paper, or has some old ads or instruction sheets handy.


    Ray
    I regret now truly to have sell (for a friend), a nice "Agenda Lumière" book from 1930's where we can surely find information about your paper.
    But I just got a bunch of old french photo books, maybe i will get some hints about Megaltra.

    Stay tunned,

    Best regards,

    Raphael

    Maybe in fact, it's "Jougla", and in this case, it's not a paper name, but once the name of the company : "Lumière-Jougla"

    Thanks Raphael...

    So far the question has not been answered.
    I feel sure that there are books about these French papers.
    Just have to look in the right pace.

    Best wishes & good luck on finding techncal info/ data sheets/ inserts
    for any of these papers.

    Hummm,
    Maybe... but there is a "Lugda" paper.
    and, one letter is easier to get wrong than 2.

    But you never know.

    Found a few bit of info

    Hi Ray,

    I don't know if you are around for now, and still need information about Megaltra paper, but at last I found an advertising in an old French photo book (Photo Almanach Prisma 1949).

    Here is a scan of the ad :

    Click image for larger version. 

Name:	megaltra.jpg 
Views:	9 
Size:	207.5 KB 
ID:	55721

    So, only two (useful ?) information :
    - It's a Chloro-bromure warm tone paper
    - Introduced in 1949 !

    I don't provide a full English translation, as the rest of paragraph is mainly commercial, but we can summarize it as this "Ideal for portrait" .

    Hope this, at last, helps !

    Regards

    Raphael
