I was a grade school student when /Aunt Viola gave me a point and shoot camera. After receiving the box camera with a flash attachment, I started sharing family photography assignments with my father. Until then, my father was the family photographer. He used a box camera he won about 20 years earlier by guessing the number of jelly beans in a Fisher Drug Store jar. His camera took good photos provided the subjects were outside on a bright, sunny day. As these entries are made in the notebook, it is partially overcast outside. Dad's camera wouldn't produce a usable picture today.
