What a marvelous film Polaroid Type 55 was. You shot, peeled off the negative and carried it around all day in an 18% Sodium-Sulfite solution. When you returned to the darkroom you would clear with Kodak Hypo-Clear, dry and print using an enlarger. One could also contact print if need be. Polaroid Type 55 gave a great look to the edge of the frame...always different from frame to frame.
I think I read somewhere that a group is trying to produce a new version of Type 55....Let's hope they succeed.
Thanks to my friend Lori in Chicago for today's quote.
