Polaroid Camera (1948)

Polaroid Camera

Until the mid-1900’s, photographs required multiple steps in a special laboratory to be developed and printed. Edwin Land (1909-1991) changed this when he introduced the first Polaroid camera in 1948. The Polaroid captured, developed and printed photos with a single click of the camera.
