Chris,

Maybe he just made a mistake once and did it this way and went "Eureka!"

I think the Guinness hypothesis is the best though....

Do you think the layer of pigment that is added later just adheres to the
"sticky part" of the paper where the gelatin remains that was possibly hardened
by the dichromate? Does the non-exposed gelatin wash off in the first
development bath?
