Love your Type 55 images Stuart. It's funny that Type 55 should come up now. I first tried Type 55 in the mid-90s, but didn't quite get the hang of it. When I saw images on the Flickr Type 55 Group (worth checking out) I thought....I've got to try this again. Next thing I know....it was being discontinued, so I bought 4 boxes from B&H Photo.
Long story short, it's been sitting unused in my refrigerator ever since. I just packed up two boxes to send to a friend in Tennessee who loves the stuff and actually uses it (but was down to his last box).
Really sad that so many excellent film based products are going the way of the dinosaurs.
