    actually, im gonna go on the motorbike and grab a few boxes and test out this wekend.....

    OK...I COULDNT SEE ANY POLYWARMTONE....

    i got a few samples to test out....no idea what they're like at all....i only ever used Ilford.....

    Fortespeed FPS 1 Grade 1
    Fortespeed FPH 1 Grade 4
    Fortespeed FPN 1 Grade 3

    Fortezo FH4
    Fortezo FN5
    Fortezo FH5

    Polygrade-V -- PG-V 5

    are these good papers then?????? or standard stuff...this is not the whole list of whats available though....there is also colour paper.....i will make a list of everything there on Monday.....the shame of it is i was noticing the paper cracked when i bent it a bit so could be a lot of them are gone with humidity......but i will check em out

    there were loads of boxes of the Fortespeed FPH 1 and FPS 1 both resin coated......at 18 x 24cm size and as these are hard cardboard boxes i would say these are NOT spoilt by humidity....i will open one tonight and see what i get

    Please add me to your growing customer list. Polywarmtone,forte, etc, etc. Send me a list and I'll send you the money with the order. Paypal OK? Graded paper would be wonderful... Thanks,Bill

    not a warehouse full!!!!!!! let's not exaggerate here!!! hahahah quite a lot of paper but i think the larger sizes have succumb to damp as i bent them a bit to test and they cracked......still....we'll see....as I said earlier the 100 sheet boxes at smaller sizes must be in good shape i would say......but perhaps its not the type you guys most want.....i couldnt see any of the warm tone one....

    Beautiful....the small hard cardboard boxes have kept the paper perfectly all these years....and we're talking plenty of years.....printed up with Ilford PQ Universal (they had five 5 litre ones dumped there on the side and I got them) and the prints are great....in-between A4 and A5 size....18 x 24cm

    The general rule with any find of neglected analog photo gear, be it paper, film, or equipment: Grab it with both hands and don't look back. It'll be much safer with you
    The Analogue Laboratory, or 'so you built a darkroom in an old factory in the industrial zone'.
    Blog thing!.

    Worry less. Photograph more.
