Looks like the company that technically "produced" most of the old family photos on my website is leaving the business they started.

The later, more convenient "Polaroid One-Step" era, where the camera regurgitated the photo, and you didn't have to "peel":

That last photo was the one the salesman at Montgomery Ward took of my mom when she was there buying the One-Step camera in December 1977.
