    In Europe they were available in 13x18cm too - I have a pack in my freezer right next to the Slavich 9x12cm plates, and under a box of Perutz Peromnia 13x18cm.

    On the new Harmon Technology website (Ilford b/w film, paper), there is a statement under one of the tabs, that says Harmon has a complete plate-coating line, and would custom make plates under the right circumstances. (I assume this to mean "huge minimum order".)

    Actually there had been three Mimosa companies.
    Due to German history...

    Just for interest ... when I worked for Ilford (1974 - 1976) I discovered that plates were still available, and as I had a 2x3 Speed Graphic with some plateholders, I bought some plates for this (FP4 I think). I left Ilford when Ilford left its original site at Roden Street, Ilford and moved to Basildon. As I recall, plate production was at Roden Street (by then I think it was the only manufacturing operation on the site) and it was quietly given up when the site was abandoned.

    Is anyone teaching a dry plate method or is this primarily the venue of highly controlled manufacturing?

    PE is making dry plate emulsions. Because glass is much easier to come by than suitable film base, plates are looking more like the future of handcoated negative media than film is.

    That’s good news. As much as I love some of the wet plate work, for myself, I’d prefer a bit more control over the anomalies.
