Not sure anyone saw the LA Times column on 12-25-16 about Christmas in downtown LA in 1954 by Chrisandra Baker.  It pretty much mirrored my own experiences as a fifties child
growing up near Georgia St. and delivering the "Mirror" to the area around what is now the Staples Center.  Spent my Saturdays going from department store to department store checking
out the toy displays and like her brother getting dirty playing on the Harbor freeway construction.

Just in case anyone would be interested... 

I've developed a way to make traditional silver-gelatin photo prints from digital images, at home, for pennies per print. I'd be glad to to show anyone interested how to do it themselves.

The benefits:

Until recently, and for the previous 100-plus years, any photograph you saw was a silver-gelatin print on fiber paper. Apart from their incomparable look and feel, silver prints are essentially immortal, countless home albums presently filled with priceless images from early last century.

By comparison, today's ink-jet and color-emulsion replacements not only look and feel cheap, they begin fading relatively abruptly.

Silver is the gold standard where photography is concerned, but essentially no one shoots film anymore, and there has been no inexpensive and convenient way to make traditional silver prints from digital images. 

The process in question can be set up for as little as $20, turn out prints for little as 20-cents, and begin operating a couple of days after becoming interested.

Feel free to pass this this on to anyone you think might be interested.

Hi Tim,
I am a traditional silver gelatin printer and I’m very curious to understand how you are making your prints.
