    I have been able to use a good portion of my Ilford paper I purchased as a kid in the early 80s. The paper was made (or at least packaged) here in Glen Waverley VIC, Aust. This paper was never stored as it should as my childhood darkroom was a tin garden shed 8'x16' and the Summer temps outside would regularly reach 45degC so it was hot in the shed. Yes there is fogging particularly around the edges, but the centres of my paper is fine. The small boxes of paper 3.5"x5" not so useful as the fogging is severe.

    Little off topic but how old would that Agfa paper be in the German EBay auction. I ask as I was given a lot of this 2 years ago. Mine has not been opened to check its condition .

    Andy, use it! I have lots of Agfa paper, including stuff made in Berlin where the factory was located prior to 1945. A lot of mine is perfect and wasn't stored with any particular care. The packages that ebayer opened (Oh, the humanity!), was made after 1945 when Agfa had moved to Leverkusen but before 1964 when the company became Agfa-Gevaert. Some of my paper has "burnt edges" but the rest of the sheet is fine and almost all of my Brovira-Speed prints with a soft pastel salmon sort of colour. See below (my screen isn't calibrated at all, so I've no idea if the scan will match the print, but here goes):

    Nice image & nice print! Suites the time period the paper was made in (Pictorialism).
    And yes: I see the pastel salmon

    Thank you. I'm always wary of posting anything with any sort of colour because my scanner is so ordinary and usually blows out the highlights and blocks up the shadows and, with no sort of calibration, I never know how it's going to look on anyone else's screen.

    Thanks for that Molli.

    It is good to know some of the history and the fact you have been able to use this paper.
