    Dan, 205 is one of the large buildings along Mt. Read Blvd. It is approached vie KP West or across a bridge from a parking lot on the west side of the Blvd.

    IIRC, it was part of the distribution center and the engineering division. I used to go to meetings there with the engineers. They had a beautiful building with big conference rooms and lots of other facilities.

    It is one of the westernmost parts of KPW.

    How many coating sites does Kodak have, England, New York, and Colorado? Which will go the new Kodak and which will stay with old Kodak? Can all 3 coat film as well as paper?

    The new owners would sell more Tri-X if it was cheaper. Plus-X as well.

    The last thing Kodak need in their current dire financial situation is to sell their products at a minimal profit, which even if they did the market for these monochrome films are so small I.M.O. the difference reflected in their actual sales wouldn't be significant.

    How do you figure when it is cheaper than Ilford HP5 or Fuji Neopan 400? Also, you can get it rebranded as Arista Premium for less than $3 a roll for now. Considering how everything in life has gone up a *lot* more, I think film is still pretty cheap, especially when one considers the price of Silver Gelatin paper...

    For a little perspective: I'm looking at a B&H ad from November 1982.
    Tri-X:
    135-36, $2.19.
    120, $1.75

    From the US Consumer Price Index's inflation calculator:

    $2.19 in 1982= $5.28 in 2013

    $1.75 in 1982= $4.22 in 2013
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    The link above from the Rochester paper leads you to a page that also includes this link: http://www.democratandchronicle.com/...-film?gcheck=1

    This latter link makes it clear that Kodak has cancelled the tentative agreement with Brother for the scanner business - both the still film and the scanner business are going to the UK pension fund.

    I know that I may be unreasonably optimistic, but I do think it's wonderful to hear "Kodak" management speak about long term growth and prosperity for film and photographic paper.

    My next concern though - what are the other creditors going to end up with. Creditors like Champion Photochemistry.
