Hi Larry,
Congrats on another great issue of Passing It On. It's just the right length to read and get some good ideas and inspiration. But I also want to respond to this blog. I still have my Brownie Starflash! I even have some flash bulbs for it. I cherish the photos I took with it and only wish there were more. I remember dropping the film off at Wyrick's Camera Center and going back a week later to pick up the snaps.
A good idea your readers might like is making an Ancester Album. I took all the old family photos grandmas and great aunts gave me, put them in my album and labeled them with birth and death dates and anything I knew about what was going on in the photo. My nieces and nephews love to go thru the album every Thanksgiving.
Best, Deb Moore

Deb, that Ancestor Album is a great idea. And, about that Brownie Starflash ... who knew you were such a sentimental type! Good for you. I remember back in the late 1960s when I was scouring thrift shops for old rock & roll and blues records, Salvation Army stores and Goodwills were full of Starflashes and other old box cameras. I wonder if any of them had unexposed film?
