Re: "ultimate alt process"
Would someone please explain (words of one syllable would be OK) the connection between the alleged "Willy Kuhne" and the presumed William Willis, whose patent of 1873 (or 6) has been cited in tones of serious nyah nyah nyah in response to my citation of a bridge completed in 1883 -- even assuming for the purpose -- any purpose -- that Kuhne was a real person and his alleged "invention," whether in 1878 as alleged, or some other year, even 1875... was "brilliant."

A US patent, USP 173,381 was issued February 8, 1876 to the same fellow. Probably this is the US version of the British patent.DEAR JUDY, 1878. Hmmmmmmmmmm. That date seems significant. Wasn't some obscure process patented that year? Let's see...might it be platinum printing? Must be something arcane like that! ;-)) CHEERS! BOB
