Possibly, the original Kodak Verichrome, devloped in Microdol. That was orthochromatic, with little sensitivity to red. Lips were rendered black, and developing was done in trays, under a red safelight.
Hooo... memories ...Ansco Supreme, Royal Pan(?), Agfa... What was the *fast"* film, ASA (then) 1600 ... "Record" something or other (lots of photographs done with candlelight...).
The start of Rodinal addiction.
Revised: Agfa Isopan Record. Still have a roll of that stuff around here somewhere...

Here is the print I made from that roll the other day. It turned out pretty good. Neg sleeve says I shot it in 1987. I was sixteen.

I still have that roll of film, and plan on making some prints from it soon.
It was 35mm, developed in D76 stock.

I was seven and I am almost sure it was FP4, certainly ILFORD, my grandfather gave it to me along with a KODAK Retinette camera, it had to be ILFORD... as he had a saying 'ILFORD for black and white, KODAK for colour' always KODACHROME, we shot the film that day and I developed it and printed it the following day in his darkroom ( with a little help of course ) in Heaton, a suburb of Newcastle upon Tyne, I can remember it like it was yesterday, unbelievably it was 1966...when that print came up it was magic, alchemy ...a wonder...and it still is...and if I could have looked then 41 years into the future......I would never have guessed I would be writing about it today...its some journey photography has taken me on.....many of you reading this the same I guess...
