Remember When

Remember these babies? Flash cubes. I can remember as a child having them around the house, watching my parents use them and then being able to use them when I took pictures with their camera. I mostly took pictures of my stuffed animals, my dog Fred and my cat Henry and my room. I love how each side was one flash. These are ones that my Dad kept around..new, never used, in their original package. The price tag says $1.57, Mapleview Pharmacy, which was next door to my Dad's barbershop. Seeing these made me think about how much photography has changed. Back then, you had 4 flashes to get the picture right. Pictures are better quality nowadays, but were they better quantity back then, knowing you couldn't waste film or a flash? Interesting to think about...
