Going Back Versus Going Backwards

skrudland-35-73608196This was the place that processed my first rolls from my little Ansco 620. It was near where my Dad worked, on Diversey, and he took his documentation pictures for work there as well. Later I was pleased to see that Skrudland had moved out to Palatine. That location, on Rand Road, is now Flash Imaging Center. For those of us who are currently shooting film without a (dark) room of one’s own, here’s the good news. Imagine sending in a roll a week, and reveling in one’s accumulation after a year.

(Thanks, Jeni.)

This next item is best summed up by their own statement: “a fun toy.” I picture four guys splitting the rent somewhere in Bucktown.
