The ad''s text explains the Kodak camera as easy to use, and developing the photographs as hassle free, listing the camera''s price range from $5.00 to $100.00 each.
Excellent overall condition with no evidence of restoration; there is very slight, unobtrusive time staining in parts of outer edges, and a small surface loss in the outer border (NOT in the image) at bottom right edge.
