to all. Do not write on the backs of photographs with a ball point pen. Over
time, the 'detergent' ink will bleed through to the emulsion side of the
photograph causing ugly marks (usually red). Many of our so-called black
'permanent' inks will do the same.
Using an ordinary graphite lead pencil is better, but the plastic layer on the
back of our modern photographic papers will usually not take lead pencil. The
answer is to place a "peal and stick", not a "lick and stick", paper label on
the back and write (with pencil to be safe) on it.
