Actually, it could be argued - the older the better.
Most of my earliest photos were 35mm transparencies. Could do with having them all scanned (or the ones sensible enough to go public).
  I think that the picture of the young Ninthace was printed from a transparency many moons ago and yes BWW, that is the Jungfrau in the background.  I was bolder and hairier then - now hair grows everywhere but on my head.  By the way, that anorak was proofed with a product called Nev, I wonder if it is still around?  No waterproof zips in those days either - it had to go on and off over your head.

The mountain in the background made me think of the Finsteraarhorn, but not been 100% sure I opted for 'Switzerland' instead. Close though ![/font][/size]

Mine was made of a material called ventile, supposed to be state of the art then. It was blue so I was spared the ubiquitous orange. However it did replace  Black's anorak, thick cotton a think that soak up moisture and could weigh a ton when fully loaded. Came in a standard green I seem to remember.
Somewhere in my attic are some 35mm transparencies, debatable if they could be scanned as I put then on protective covers, because I got persuaded to do slide shows for some scout groups. A chance meeting some decades later, I learnt that I had put one lad on a pathway to notability in the great outdoors scene.
