    My first photos were taken with my mom's Brownie Junior 620, over 50 years ago. Still have a few of those pictures. Development and a fresh roll of film from Fox Photo, was $0.65. Today I found a Brownie Junior 620, at a yard sale, for $5.00. ( You didn't think I would leave it there, did you?):smile: The picture is, just as found, with no clean up, beside my E-p3 and 45mm. Both were compact, "for their day". I had no Idea where mom's "Brownie Box" went. It's very a good day for me.:smile:
    The man said, "it's been laying around here for a long time. How do you focus it? How do you take it apart? How does it work?"
    It was the ultra simple picture making machine. And it just needs a roll of film, to do it again!:2thumbs:

    Nice story. Looks like a fun opportunity to reconnect with your past. :thumbup:

    It's gonna be hard to find someone to match that Fox Photo price on development these days, though. :wink:

    I'm thrilled for you to have been able to get the sweet little box! There is a wonderful magic produced by these old cameras that empowered the masses.
