    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.

    Late 1940's.

    Revised: Agfa Isopan Record. Still have a roll of that stuff around here somewhere...

    Couldn't find my first film which was disappointing, found the rest which were all taken on Tmax, Fp4 safety film and HP5.

    First film I fell in love with was HP5, not sure why I don't use it now?!

    I can't remember, but it was in the mid 1950's, and it came in 127 size for my Baby Brownie.

    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...
