In Praise Of Polaroid P/N 55

Aberdare Hotel, Weston, N.S.W. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/51177900592_ef781a1a61_o.jpg Rumour has it that the emulsion commissioned by Edwin Land was Kodak Panatomic, nominally 32 ISO with a delightful 1940s/1950s tonality. Extremely fine-grained. I would rate and shoot for a negative and ...

Well Deserved Retirement

Now safely preserved in the protective shelter on the new-ish Rail Museum at Thirlmere the water tanks and boiler of Shunter 1308 were quite freely accessible to skallywags and the elements on a siding for years. And it appears some of the rust might not have been externally climatic but undrained a...
