He would finish a print in minutes, alternatively soaking it in ammoniated water and blasting it with water. Now we know not to do that, but he got some amazing black and white prints with nearly full tonality.

I had absolutely no luck with paper negatives but when I switched to
transparencies exposure times are abt. 2 minutes. Is there a resiprocity
failure as with silver negs, or something like that involved?
Temperaprints take about 7-10 minutes of exposures, cyanos on the other
hand give nice results with paper negatives (oiled Epson Photo Quality
paper) ~ 1h.
btw. I looked at the old alt-photo at usask.ca one week ago, but now
they are deleted, are there any copies?
