As I used to live in Waltham, I always went to Newtonville and never made it to Zeff. What I liked at Newtonville was that the people working there still used film and the darkroom. I bought some Ilford selenium toner there within the last 4 years and the clerk said to let them know how it was - she hadn't tried it, yet, but was looking forward to it. They helped me build my first darkroom and I supplied myself from there when I lived in MA. Down here, there's no one like them. I hope they stay around in case I get to move back up there.
