The Value of a Scrapbook?

scrapbook page of oldWe all remember how picture taking used to work.

  1. Buy a roll of film and install it in your camera.
  2. Take the 20-some pictures that fit on the roll.
  3. Remove the roll out of the camera
  4. Take the used film to your local film developing shop.
  5. Pick up the film a few days later (or hours).

This was all a process that produced a physical picture, you could hold in your hands, pass around.

Each unique picture cost around $.0.25 cents by the time you purchased and developed the film, so folks generally kept and cherished each picture…even if it wasn't perfect. Read more »
