1961-66



When I was in first grade my mother bought me a used box camera for $5, a big clunky thing about twenty or thirty years old. It used large film, larger than 35 mm, so the photos, both black and white and color, turned out to be high quality. The prints we made were cheap and small, so these reproductions are the best I can get.

The flash photography was made with a modern, later, camera which used bulbs. The film was smaller and of poorer quality.
