That's a great picture. I was trying to work out which film was used - Kodak gave their films a four-digit number, which are summarised in this table here:

I surmise, based on the age and the fact it is black and white, that it was Panatomic X, 5060, which is out of production but sounds great (the name alone sounds great).

Yes, that's true. Pan-x was an extremely slow, extra-fine grain film, often used for specialty photography and technical work. It's asa was only 32.

Pro's followed in most situations by shooting 5062- Plus-X Pan film, (asa 125), and then 5063-Tri-X Pan film, (asa 400).

By the early 80s Tri-X was used by journalists almost exclusively, because of its speed in low-light situations, and because you could push it to 16oo asa, and shoot sports indoors, in the rain, at dusk you name it. It was very grainy, but it held up for reproduction in newspapers quite well. We used D-76 to process pushed Tri-X, at 800 or 1600 asa.

Thanks for your comment, and your visit.

I think it's highly unlikely that this was shot on Pan-x 32 asa. My vote would be for 5062 Plus-x for this period of time and usage by newspapers.
