Tools of a dying trade

My father was a photographer but he also spent many years working as a freelance photo retoucher for numerous studios in NY area. He spent countless hours hunched over a lightbox in his studio, painstakingly correcting and cleaning photo negatives. He gave me most of his retouching tools after his eyesight failed and he retired. This is only a fraction of the stuff he used.
