    getting Forte paper they were gonna throw...(updated with what i got)

    .....some people I know are clearing out a building that used to stock loads of principally b+w photographic products....

    .....as mentioned earlier, for a fee of £25 I was allowed to take whatever I wanted and me and a friend took out all the Ilford paper they had and all the Paterson stuff we needed....we're talking brand new (condition) stuff in boxes so im completely set up for film and print developing......

    now...we left behind all the Forte paper....tons of the stuff.....its all out of date of course but hey, they're all in sealed boxes....worth going back for and what shall i look for specially????

    It's probably worth more than the Ilford. Absolutely, it's worth going back, especially if there is some Polywarmtone.
