My Mom had her picture taken by Edward Land, a friend of her boss, over 60 years ago.

The entire office was stunned when Mr. Land pulled the film out of the camera, coated it with a noxious chemical, and waited as my mother’s image appeared.

Turned out that she was the first woman to have her portrait taken with a Polaroid Prototype Camera.

I think she still might have that picture...somewhere.
