Oldest photo studio in the world exists in Kolkata. It started in 1867. The age of this studio is now 144 years. It is one of the Q-lab of Kodak in this world. It means the quality of development is same in all those labs. In today's digital world still it has maintained its quality of development.
At times when no digital world was created, they were the pioneer for professionals. Especially for those who used to develop pictures in board mount.
The board mount pictures are of different type. It is directly exposed into film means the positive i.e. you can watch output into the film only. They are known as TP or translate film. The developed picture you need to put into a projector and watch.
So for corporate presentation, what we do through Power Point now-a-days, was must. It was very popular to professional photographers as they used to get same color saturation what they tried to achieve.
Now coming to inside the studio part, travelling all the way through wooden stairs finally you arrive there. The moment you enter you can notice many photographs of old Kolkata i.e. of British period. It is nice to see old Kolkata through their eyes.
