Photography related ads from 1880 into the 1990s.
Those box cameras were used by many with good results well into the modern era.
Re: 1970’s ads, my dad had a Beseler enlarger. He in fact had a whole darkroom set up in our house. We enjoyed many wonderful hours taking black and white photos and developing them.
The digital age is exciting, but nothing beats the tactile feeling of swirling a piece of photo paper in the finisher and hanging it up to dry :)
Just curious, is there a photography related ping list?
I remember the first time I was successful rolling
film on that reel to make negatives,kinda tricky
There was a photo lab at Ft Bragg that I spent many
hours at..the only cost was the paper.
They had those Beseler enlargers there
I’ve got a list I use for my wildlife photography when I’m able to get out with a camera but we don’t have a general photography list.
I would appreciate being added to that list. Im a noob to DSLR and have been hacking away and find it very helpful when I can see what others are doing and more important, how they did it. I screw up a lot but take pride when I know the shot came out good and the camera was NOT on automatic. Thanks.
It's so hard to believe that Kodak is going to file for bankruptcy. The ultimate irony is that a Kodak engineer invented the digital camera and ten years later, Kodak developed the first mega-pixel camera but management just didn't see the possibilities and the company relied on its film production till it was too late.
If I can help you just give a shout.
When Kodak did start with consumer digital they sold a lot of really marginal Asian junk. A lot of it was pitiful!
The Inflation Calculator is cool! So I guess the stuff we get at the Dollar Store in 2010, they would have bought at the Four Cent Store in 1861? :-)
do you remember the five and dime stores, five and ten, dimestores?
You betcha! When I was a kid, there were TG&Ys, Newberry, Woolworth’s, Ames ... my mother used to sew and crochet a lot, so we were in these places quite a bit. And yes, there were lots of items that DID sell for a nickel.
