I also had a Boots own brand camera but it was a 35mm not a 110 film format.

Kodak Brownie 127, I've still got many of the photos I took with it.

The local newsagent used to let me have out of date films for pennies and all of them worked just fine.

That’s the one I had too, just after I left school at 15 yrs…. I recently acquired one from a charity shop recently, for old-times sake, it still has its canvas ? Case….

First I remember was a Diana F. Came on a piece of cardboard, plastic sealed with the flashgun and six blue flash-bulbs. Cost about 30/-.

They come in a fancy box with other stuff these days, for £79!

Mind you, I remember when the Lubitel was about £15. £289 ?
