Retro-Wednesday.....





And yet another relic from the past...Gone by the wayside.

The Poloroid Land Camera. Circa 1974. Complete with Flash Bars!

"It's more than a camera, it's Almost Alive!

It's only Nineteen Dollars and Ninety-Five"......

Peace...!!!

I had one of those when I was, like, 10. I'm really glad my digital camera doesn't have those icky flash things. And you still have this why?:)

I loved Polaroids. I'm still heartbroken that they stopped making them last year. They were great fun to use :) I swear, seeing old yellowed polaroid pictures makes me think of childhood.

So, how much is the film that goes inside it? LOL, I bet that is expensive.
I remember my dad had one of those polaroids..and I loved the fact that the pics came out instantly..and like magic the photo appeared before your very eyes :)

ha, that's old. i've got one too from my dad, where the flash is this round silver things that you have to fan out into a circle? nope, digital's much easier.

To think that way back when these things used to be the cutting edge. We are like our grandparents having gone from horse and buggy to flights to the moon old man.

I remember thinking that the flash bars were the coolest things ever. I now understand why there are so few pictures from long ago and how cherished they are.

I'd never trade my digital now though. ;)

My Dad loved the latest gizmos- we had one of the first to come out, and it was a lot more than 20 bucks! Made of metal and leather, it was a wonder for it's time...

And isn't polaroid going to stop making film for those cameras. Now it's truly a relic! :/
