Land camera by Polaroid

Description: Before digital cameras, Edwin Land invented a way see the picture right after snapping the picture. His daughter inspired him by asking why she couldn’t see the picture right away. He created a way to develop film inside the camera in the late 1940s. After snapping the picture, one removes the picture without taking the film to be developed. This Land camera is from about 1955.
