I hope to learn how to determine (approximately) when a picture was taken and/or developed.
I have a few boxes of photos to be scanned but prior to doing so I would like to be able to have a better idea of the date — or at least year — they were taken, and then scan and take note.
If I’ve actually made a print using a specific paper, I’ll note the optimal conditions for printing that I discovered. Recommended developer: Kodak Dektol, D-72, or Ektaflo, Type 1. It has sufficient speed for enlarging with standard equipment, and can be used for contact printing with reduced illumination. (I made some contact prints with Opal from the mid-1960s and must stress the reduced illumination part.
I would use that only as a starting guide, as any prints made with vintage photo papers would vary due to storage conditions, developer used, light source, etc. A 15 watt bulb is too bright unless you’re making a contact print of under a second. Kodak Resisto N – A contact printing paper, produced by coating on an emulsion similar to Velox on a special water resistant base. Kodak Resisto Rapid N – An enlarging paper made with an emulsion similar to Kodabromide in the the manner of the above paper.
Then came the local drug store offering CD with hard copy prints.
However, most of the pictures do not have any clear id for dates on the back of the photos. so that's out (unless there is info on the negatives I can look to) but most have some imprint of their own code: a combination of numbers, symbols, and letters but nothing I have been able to figure out from my own memory of when they were taken.
I think you would have more luck trying to identify the age from looking at the contents of the photos themselves.
I am not an expert over old Kodak prints, but these things could help others in identification: Is that a baryta paper (feels like paper on the back side) or a resin coated paper (feels like plastic on the back side)?
Kodak Aristo – A contact printing paper of moderate warmth intended expressly for contact printing of portraits. Portrait Proof Paper is a developing-out paper, not a printing-out paper (I have no idea what that means). (I tried using this a contact printing paper, and it was simply too fast for my 15 watt bulb.
Kodak papers often have an alphabetical and numeric code after the name of the paper (for example, “Azo F-3”). A 1.5 minute developing time was sufficient) Kodak Platino – A medium high-speed enlarging paper with slightly less warmth of tone than Opal. This base permits rapid washing and holds size during processing much better than an ordinary paper base. Kodak Ad-Type – A fast contact printing paper with the speed of Azo. Kodak Velox – A fast contact printing paper with a blue-black image tone. Recommended developer: Kodak Dektol (3 second exposures made with a 15 watt bulb seemed to work well with my prints. Kodak Translite Film – Intended for transparencies, and consists of a safety film base coated with emulsion on both sides. Translite Enlarging Paper – Similar to Translite Film except that paper is used for the emulsion support.
The number refers to the contrast rating of that paper, and the letter refers to the surface type. Kodabromide – A fast enlarging paper of exceptional quality. Recommended developer: Kodak D-52 or D-72 (or, as my pack of paper says, use Dektol of cold tones, or Selectol for warm tones). It can be folded without cracking for mailing or making folded greeting cards. Developing time ranged from 50 seconds to 1 minute, 20 seconds) Kodak Velox Rapid – Designed for use with the Velox Rapid Printer or similar optical printers. Kodak Velite – A photographic paper which can be exposed and processed under tungsten light, fluorescent light, and even subdued daylight. It is recommended for use in a contact printer using a 60 watt bulb. Start with a 5 second illumination at 60 watts and go from there) Kodak Illustrator’s Special – Has a full-scale, brilliant emulsion of the quality and speed of Opal. The speed and contrast of Safety Translite Film are approximately the same as those of Platino No. Translite Film yields especially beautiful transparencies when colored with Kodak Transparent Oil Colors or Kodak Transparent Water Colors. It is coated on both sides with light-sensitive emulsion and has a printing speed similar to Kodak Opal Paper.
Opalure Print Film – A printing material having an emulsion similar to that of Kodak Opal Paper.
It is coated on a white film base It gives beautiful warm tones with direct development. ) Kodagraph Papers – Designed for the reproduction of documents and engineering drawings.
My interest in knowing is purely for my ease of recall so I will just sit quietly and reflect back and guess as I do have a good memory.
