    After reading the earlier post I picked up one of my Dad's old photography magazines today.

    To put things into perspective here's a quote from a letter to the editor in the Spring 1948 issue of "Photo Arts".

    "....I came across an article in your swell magazine on the future of color. The story began with this provocative question: "Is Black-and-White Photography doomed?" The accompanying photographs make the question a foregone conclusion. Obviously, black-and-white photography is not only doomed according to your pictorial evidence, but it seems incredible that it has survived this long...."

    And yet, 60 years later, we can still buy black and white film. It's not as easy as it used to be but it's still here.

    Ok, thy this on for size!

    This is probably the last Kodachrome ad Kodak ever ran. It was in "Darkroom Techniques" from the early 90s.

    Kodachrome and Ektachrome shared the bill.

    There's a great site at http://www.photomemorabilia.co.uk/ for anyone interested in the history of Ilford Ltd. Some good memorabilia pics there also, a few of which I have contributed.

    Maurice Fisher is the site owner; I'm sure he would welcome any examples of old Ilford advertising for inclusion on the site.

    The only thing more loudly represented than Ilford was Kodak in my magazines - they're on the back cover of pretty much every issue I have. Kodachrome 25 especially is touted very prominently In those days. Mid 1970's.

    The Analogue Laboratory, or 'so you built a darkroom in an old factory in the industrial zone'.

    Related to the 100th anniversary in 1994 of Lieven Gevaert starting manufacturing photographic products the Fotomuseum Antwerpen in collaboration with Agfa-Mortsel made an exposition devoted to 70 years advertising of Gevaert (untill the merger) .
