This Day in Tech History – Instant Glamour

November 28

Nothing in life captures a moment for posterity like a photograph.  I remember all too well the documentation that my Grandmother lovingly placed in the dozens of photo albums she made over the years but on this day in 1948 something truly revolutionary was introduced just in time for Christmas.  The Polaroid Instant Camera allowed photographers to gain instant gratification of seeing the images they captured in about a minute without the need to use dark rooms and dangerous chemicals.  From this day forward…things were different n the world of pictures, in fact a stylized version of the Polaroid camera is still iconic as the image used for Instagram!
