Ansco SHUR SHOT c1948

 Cameras, whether noble or pedestrian are miraculous devices. They freeze time and memories.

The Ansco SHUR SHOT is common on the used camera market. Thousands were produced in Binghamton,  New York. Every damn one of them documented something important. Every damn one of them.

Miracle lever

 Life is full of treasures, some fade and others stay.
 There's a mere handfull that remain with us today.

 They're memories of our families, how we used to be.
 Lessons learned by the years, that taught us how to see.
