British photographic history
Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
Is there an industry name for this [see attached] kind of textured surface photographic paper?
I've usually seen it on 1920s and 1930s photographs.

I recall it being referred to as satin-finish, but I don't know whether that was an industry term or not.
I always knew it as 'stipple' finish
Fine guys from PhotoHistory group were able to IDd it as Kodak Polylure Paper Y [Silk]
