Random Ad - Nurofilm (1930's)
Click to Enlarge
1930's advert for Nurofilm roll camera film. Only 8 shots per reel. Before digital cameras you'd take your 8 (or 12 or 24 or 36) pictures not knowing wether or not you'd managed to get Auntie Flo's head in focus let alone in the frame, and then take the reel into a chemist to be processed and printed. Several days later the result could be 8 close-up snaps of your thumb or 8 perfectly composed artistic photographs. What fun!
