My first  camera was a birthday gift, May 27, 1950 from my wife on my first 
birthday  after we were married the previous October.. An Argus A2 35mm, 
today we  might call it a point n' shoot!

However this little Argus was plastic,  no electronics. A box you put a roll 
of film in and made a few adjustments  according to the piece of paper with 
the exposure suggestions in the film  box. :-)

So now you folks know who to blame for launching me into this  wild and 
world of photography! ;-) But man I have absolutely no  regrets, other than 
wish I could do it all over again ten fold times!  :-)
