Hi everyone

An interesting discussion re this subject. It shows the inventiveness of
histology. The tedium of staining though, is only matched by the tedium
of processing and cutting. Oh, and the joy of block storage.

I should add that I'm not that old (yet!), using this method into the
mid 1980's for processing whole eyes. I understand that it was finally
abandoned in the early 1990's in favour of wax.
