MONOCHROME MANIA - PART 3 #7

The "Grain" Graders

Strictly one for the "older" members of Shutterchance.  I have never really been in to tabletop work but we had several such evenings at my first Camera Club and I set this up in rememberance of the old televison advert of the time, probably the mid-70's.

If you saved enough coupons you could send off for a set of Salt and Pepper Homepride Flour Men, and even more vouchers would get a very large man for holding the flour.

(All of the pictures in this series were taken on B&W.film, developed and printed by me, and sometimes entered into Club competitions.  This is original monochrome work and the only digital bit is scanning the prints into Photoshop and preparing them for display here.)
