It might be that Varigam was the first variable contrast paper to be
marketed in certain region, but Renwick of Ilford was the first one to
invent variable contrast paper in 1930's. He chose to use fine grained
high contrast emulsion sensitized with blue-green dye, while using
faster, softer emulsion without dye. Today, most manufacturers make
their variable contrast emulsions in a different way.
