Yashica 35W camera

Contributed by St Lukes - Sway

This camera belonged to a pupil's grandfather. He first had the camera when he was a teenager and he wanted to become a photographer. The camera was passed onto his son, who was also keen on photography. His grandson now looks after the camera very carefully. This object was chosen because children of all ages take photographs today and enjoy it! This object shows that the physical appearance of objects may change, but the importance of taking photos to keep precious memories is still alive.
