KODAK and snail mail

I'll let this 1964 ad speak for itself.

Today we have various mail order choices. 

Once upon a time it was only Kodak.

Little did people know they were receiving 
future flea market items directly to their home.

  1. Oh, I had forgotten about this processing by mail thing. I did use it once or twice. It really didn't take off like Netflix, though, did it?

  2. I don't know how well it worked. I occasionally find an old envelope so I know my folks must have tried it a few times. I think more often people took their film to a camera shop way back then or the drug store.

    I also found a brochure for sending Polaroids in to get copies and blow-ups.

  3. I added a little post script to my bats post! :D
