Hmmmm. {Thinks harder} that was the Mid-'70s in the UK. (_19_70s, that is!).

Aculux for Tr-X and FP4 35mm, AcuPrint for Kodak Double weight Lustre. Moved to Ilfospeed paper and Multigrade when it came out.
Initial advice from the store (we had a good one locally then, now long gone), then self-taught from books, magazines (had good ones then too), and making mistakes (I still make those, unfortunately).

Now I'm using Thornton's Two-bath for Delta 100, Delta 400 and the odd but odd Plus-X. Mostly 5x4 or roll film. Very little 35mm. Printing using Multigrade Warmtone on iIford Warmtone fibre mostly.
