I won two of these on eBay and they arrived today.

I cannot express how cool these are!

Before I bid on it I did some research. because I got rid of all of my darkroom stuff years ago and no photo processing shops around, how would I get these printed up.

Well it turns out that all you have to do is scan it with a copying machine, run that digital image that you get through any image software that does "negative image" effect, poof! your back to a positive!

I will be taking both of them to work tomorrow and Going through that process. But being the impatient soul I am I took a photo of one, cropped, it ran it through a website that does negative image conversion, and brought it back down.

Before & After.

Ahh  one of those left handed machines!!  I guess if she was the right way, she would want to be sewing, and not sitting still enough for the photo.
