19-year-old Helena Muffly wrote exactly 100 years ago today:
Wednesday, September 9, 1914: The last of my pictures came today. Of the seven that were taken while we were at the Falls, three were no good.
Her middle-aged granddaughter’s comments 100 years later:
Poor Grandma– It sounds like a near disaster if 3 of the 7 pictures were “no good.” Maybe the mist (or the lighting) at Niagara Falls affected the pictures.
Even though it hasn’t been all that long since I had a camera that used film, it seems like a vague memory. Some things have changed for the better!
