All I remember is Ilford Pearl. But, then again, I can't even remember what my name was yesterday.

Pearl is just the finish, Bill ...

Thanks, MJ ... but, because I noted Agfa, Kodak, Ilford and Fuji - the inference could be made I was referring to Darkroom papers .... okay?

Now wait a minute. Today is tomorrow. That makes yesterday today. So the day I was asking about was the day before yesterday. So what was my name THEN? Can't you get anything straight? I'm sooooo confused......

Anyway, I did some research and this (or whatever it was called in the '70's; I don't remember much about anything except a plant called Columbian Gold) was what I used - I think... Ilford Multigrade IV RC Paper Pearl 8x10

When I switched to digital, I used Ilford Galerie Classic Pearl Paper for Inkjet - or whatever I could get free (usually Kodak crap) or in sample packs (mostly Ilford and Hahnemühle); I ordered LOTS of sample packs under different names and addresses.

Thanks for the update on the paper you used in the darkroom! ...
