There is much to learn from flicking through old copies of the BJP. The 1987 Annual gave us several treats:
An article about Henry Emerson in the Broadlands by Ray Aspin.
An interview with Giacomelli about his landscapes
Last but not least a detailed article by Geoffrey Crawley, the then editor, about processing film at home, with many formulae. Crawley of course was one of the world's experts on making up new developers.
It's also interesting to see some photographs by Jillian Edelstein, Mark Power, Paul Graham, Eamonn McCabe, Chris Smith and others. Colin Osman, of Creative Camera fame, was picture editor. He died in 2001.
