I saw these old cameras online the other day, they brought back so many memories. I remember having a Vivitar camera like this and one like the Kodak below.
This Kodak pocket Instamatic brought me back, too. I remember getting this exact one for my birthday one year.
I remember how cool it was in the box just like this. It had that weird extender for the flash club, remember, there were four flashes on a square cube. And the film was a cassette. I wonder what happened to mine. Did we just throw it out? I have to check my old closet at my parents’ house one day, it’s got to be in there.
When I was older, maybe in my 20s, I worked for a department store, in the camera department for awhile. We sold tons of these little cassette films.
And we developed so many cassettes, too. A guy would pick them up the cassettes and then deliver the photographs in envelopes to the store.
