    historic convira paper, ansco

    I suspect it was used for contact printing 9 x 18 inch aerial negatives on the b ig contact printer like we used to use on the aircraft carrier.

    I trained to repair the big camera, but I have forgotten the type number.

    Most of our film and paper was made by Ansco.

    I served aboard the USS Coral Sea, CVA 43 from 1971 -- 1972. Photographers Mate 3rd Class.
