In November 1972 the Dow went above 1,000 for the first time. I was a sophomore in high school in Oklahoma City, cheerleading on Friday nights and learning how to drive. A snap shot of a day would be doing French homework, discovering a talent in art class and still feeling sleepy in chapel which was an every school day thing at 8:00 am, and ending my school day with field hockey. I would come home to my mother in the kitchen, feeding my baby brother while she prepared dinner.
I have a scrapbook of those days, somewhere in storage, mostly in square photos and scrapbooks from the rest of my life ending abruptly in 2004 when I went digital, which was about the same time Kodak was removed from the Dow Jones. Now Polaroid will quit making film. Snap. Change happens like that.
My retro daughter who still plays with a Polaroid should stock up with film.
