I spent half my life in college playing with the Webster College Honeywell
Repronar. A duping system with a camera on top of a box.

I'd recrop and lighten or darken slides.
Do sandwiches. All kinds of funny things for much college credit.
Spent so much academic time with the thing and wondered how life would be
when I graduated and didn't have use of the thing. I'd never be able to
afford one or find one in the real world I knew.
When I was pretty much done with school I did a multi screen slide show for
Six Flags in St. Louis and came back and they let me use the thing for an
afternoon. That was 1974. For me Day one.

Nixon was out I was in.
