Polaroid 210 Land Camera

My very first pull-and-peel Polaroid, which I have loved from day one. The film has been getting more and more expensive, but every time I splurge and buy some, the pictures are worth it. I think this camera was $5.99, and it came with the original instructions, which I seem to have mislaid. It also came with a flashgun, which I gave away because I didn't know I could still buy bulbs, and a cold clip, which I discarded because it was disgusting.

 

Most of the time I have found these cameras, they have been riddled with corrosion from old batteries, but this one was clean, and well taken-care-of.

 

Circa 1997. The Hollywood Thrift Store. Portland, Oregon. $5.99-ish.
