Then and now 16: fast ORTHO film

Great weather, so I put my only 1957 Ortho Selochrome in the HB, speed group E and Weston 80. Well, after 53+ years maybe Weston 24.
After lamb and sljivovica I (try to) concentrate on red flowers, yellow trees, to see that ortho-effect.
IF: because at home I discover that the back paper is stuck to the film. S***. I decide to develop the film - and when wet the paper can be peeled off, leaving the back a bit rough, but who cares. I have images! Wow! (Look at flickr for the nasty details.)

(In my youth the Strassenbahn was yellow - the right colour. Nowadays they are white/red. Or worse.)
