    I'm blown away by that... no fog after nearly 80 years? How is that possible? Slow speed I guess helps, but it's amazing to me...

    I was very impressed with it. I bought it along with a package of Defender Velour Black that was about the same age. I was more interested in the Defender paper, but it turned out to be a bust - there was only one sheet in the package. The Vitava was a sealed pack of 12 sheets. That gave me enough to work with. I was expecting long printing times, but it is as fast as a modern paper. Untoned, it has a nice look, deep warm blacks. With sepia toner, it is very warm medium brown. I used it to print a wedding photo that looks like it could be from the 1920's.

    Hmm, if you got that stuff recently on eBay, I might have picked up something from the same seller.

    Anyways, it's great that you're actually able to put it to good use; for a wedding album no less. Guess I shouldn't have underestimated that box of Kodabromide I found at Goodwill... but I've fogged it all by now.
