Royal Bromide 1947

While working on my main project, I came across in two rare boxes of 12x18 11/16 inches Kodak Royal Bromide photographic paper, still wax-sealed and with expiration date printed on label Jan. 1, 1947.
Im aware that using vintage silver gelatin papers as negative on film holders of my large format cameras (up to 16x20 inches) and making long exposures (up to 30 minutes) produces a positive image, once developed.
Even if the Royal emulsion is almost exhausted it still reacts to chemicals and produce a twilight deep sepia tone, giving me a unique print.
This paper its an invitation to reflect on the relationship between past and present; everything flows and nothing is lost.
I think of all the men and women who proudly worked for Kodak factory and my prints are a kind of sign that their commitment has not been lost, that their legacy has come down to this day, in some way
