I just had to include this picture. It just really makes you think of how much technology has changed, and makes you wonder what is going to be coming along next. This film strip projector probably was created in the 1940’s. Even a quick search on the web shows models I’m familiar with and used in the classroom on a relatively regular basis. Now…they’re obsolete. I doubt schools even have a projector, let alone any of the films. Amazing - such a short time to be around and now they’re antiques…to sit in a museum…mementos of long ago.
Ready for a piece of trivia??? Coleman used to make film projectors for remote places without electricity...looked almost identical but it was on a coleman stove (circa 1949).
