I remember doing this with my Dad.
As a teenager I used to do all this with my Dad, we had converted a bedroom into a Darkroom for both colour and B&W.
Still remember the almost magic of B&W prints just appearing before my eyes in the developer tray, had to let it get 'too dark' as the red 'safelight' made everything appear dark.
Still have most of the kit gathering dust somewhere. Including his quarter plate camera....
