  10. Another great post, thanks Marc!
    Strobe against flash bulbs, mostly in Rolleis. A Pyongiang bridge that got a Pulitzer for Desfor, and with a Speed Graphic - that is a great story!
    Atget is featured in Camera Carrousel. Lloyd Varden tells of a developer with 200 g/l carbonate, there might be some image amongst the grain for our standards. And those dealer's ads, before the Japanese onslaught, where a Contax III was 100 $ more expensive than a II, and Exakta was queen. Cameras were pretty expensive in 1952.
