    And my very first camera as a young lad was a camera acquired by collecting cigarette coupons. My Mother used to own a shop and as a general store they also sold cigarettes and tobacco.

    It came into her possession before I was born but when I came on the scene in 1947, I became, like most babies, well documented on film. I guess in the late 50's the camera was given to me and so started a lifetime interest in all things photographic. carreras-fortune-telling-leaflet-large.

    Nice one Joe, never thought others would add to it? But the more the merrier.
