With high speeds, colour film, flash bulbs, and inexpensive cameras, etc. anybody could take decent photographs – or so the marketeers insisted. Ads like one on p 148 in the November 20, 1964 issue of LIFE used cameras to sell other products. Everybody hopped on the photography bandwagon. Books, cameras, accessories, advertisements, magazines, clubs. What a great time to take up a practical hobby like photography. Every family group had at least one photographer dedicated to snapping that Kodak moment for posterity.
Once again, a big thank you to PHSC member and my good friend George Dunbar whose enthusiasm and research reminds us all of photography’s golden days.
