Minolta Pocket Camera.

Minolta Pocket Camera.

Long before high tech and iPads/Pods et al, there was the Minolta Pocket Camera. I captured some pricesless pictures with it during my active service tour with the Irish Guards in 1967. It still works perfectly some 43 years later.

I have been through so many changes - some good, some not so good - it is a miracle that I have managed to keep this little camera with me. Besides my family, it has been the one permanent thing in my life.
