The original Portriga was IMHO one of the most beautiful papers ever.

    I don't know of anything like the old Brovira. I had a lot of it, probably 
all fogged now. AGFA made some unique papers. I have some ancient AGFA and 
Ansco 
(who made the same stuff here) sample books and I think they made the best 
looking paper of any of the brands. I used to use Indiatone, if you think Kodak 
Opal was slow Indiatone made it look like a racehorse.
