    Still Own One!

    Before digital cams... Polaroids were the going thing. I still have mine, that I got for a present at age 12. When digital cameras came out, I didn't bother buying one! I had not planned on sharing my picture online, EVER! But then, I wanted to share my pic with my...

    Another Childhood Icon Moves Into History

    My father can raise one eyebrow way up his forehead in one abrupt move.  This is the reason, in all the Polaroids of my childhood, it seems my brother, sisters, and I are always laughing. I remember Polaroids when they were part of the domestic landscape--when every picture...

    I Still Have One!

    If It Weren't For Polaroids...

     How many memories of people here involve the Polaroid Instant Camera? Too many to count, I venture.  If not for the qualities of the developing film, one of Peter Gabriel's more famous album covers wouldn't exist. The cover for his eponymous album with "Games...

    Sure Do

    Still have one that works, it opens up and the lens pulls out , it was used in a nightclub to take pictures of customers to sell to them. I also remember the Brownie Box camera, my first camera.

    My Mom Had One

    She was always complaining because I remember the picture cartridges were really really expensive for those things! Everyone always shakes the picture too, what's up with that? LOL
