    No a much worse case was when Wolf Larsen thought Charlie had become a chicken in "The Gold Rush" and chased him round the cabin with an axe.

    Seems so, it's a niche market. I read about the French Army using it and that's why Ilford (Oji) said it would be manufactured until 2020 at least. Because their contract ends there.

    It would be sad to have it discontinued. I want to try it once I have a few nice slides.

    The factory in Switzerland also makes some nice inkjet papers, which are quite easy to get hold of (in Europe, at least). They are branded as Ilford, as they have the right to do that for what are regarded as colour materials. That apparently is why Harman's line of inkjet papers, made in the UK, is branded Harman.

    I fear this may mean "goodbye to Ilfochrome". I would like to be wrong about this.

    Considering this happened a year ago, I wouldn't be extremely worried about it being killed off any faster now that a private firm owns it.

    The end

People made better wealth in the past by employing people and making products than the robber barons of this century are making corporate raids. The people of the industrialized world deserve the financial instability we have now because we have let the giant corporate culture evolve. The people in developing counties deserve what they WILL get when the same corporations forsake them. Hopefully we will have a giant solar storm and everybody will be directly responsible for their own needs and welfare. Corporate savvy and paper shuffling will have no value then....EC
    I'm with you EC, it might be interesting to watch an investment banker trying to buy food or water with worthless money.

Isn't it curious than investment company here in Australia owned by two general practitioners was one of the less-palatable reasons why Australia's best Ilfochrome lab — ChromaColour — went bust?
