I bought my first and only enlarger the same year I got my first camera for Christmas. Back then, as a child, I could only earn money by collecting waste paper. I only realized today that I handed in more than 600 kg of old paper back then to be able to buy it. The parents were very surprised when an elderly man showed up at our place and brought this old Opemus 6×6. So I have been its proud owner for 42 years. It still works great. This is how it looks like when a photo is born the classic way..
