That's interesting to know, John. I too come from a generation where we developed our own film & printed our own prints...I remember once being the proud owner of, first an Agfa, then a Gnome enlarger.
I think my first camera was an Ensign- Ful Vue Super, that was when I was about 15 years old.
Maybe digital cameras have spoiled the art of photography to some extent, being able to take hundreds of shots & being able to delete those that don't reach expectations.
From a cost point of view, we had to take more care over composition and choice of film speed......or am I just getting old??
