    One hundred and fifteen years old tomorrow and still available (though not under that name)!

    From its Wonkypedia page:
    [h=2][/h] Rodinal was patented January 27, 1891 by Dr. Momme Andresen. It was the first product sold by Agfa and is the oldest photographic product still available (2014)

    Very wonky, Adrian, as it was called Rodinal the last time I bought some, about seven years ago and is still shown as such at Silverprint. Other suppliers of darkroom consumables are available. :) But it is a happy birthday and an amazing product. One of the first things I learned in my resurrected photo-life in the 1970s was that a bottle was retrieved not long before from a WW1 damaged cellar and the brown liquid therein worked on some film just as it should when new. Cheers, Oly

    I'd love for Agfa or some rich bod to buy back all the best 'assets' and get back into photographic production. No, not CT18 but the best B&W chemistry, the films and the best papers, especially, IIRC, those discontinued in the 1970s & 1980s.

    Now, if I had won the whole £66 million ...
