Happy SUNday! – Remembering Expo 67

It’s hard to believe that Expo 67 was 54 years ago – I remember most of our trip and stay in Montreal but not that much of the event except, I remember meeting one of the hostesses (not these exact ladies) and having my picture taken next to her and another taken with a Canadian Mountie. I know where the Mountie picture is but I can’t find the other. Perhaps I’ll scan the Mountie pic for another Sunday.

Perfect 1960s style just right for Expo 67.
The Kodak Instamatic 104 camera she’s holding was released in July 1965 and retailed for just under $20 (that’s quite a bit of 1960s money). The 104 was the first to feature the new flashcube and like all early Instamatics used the newly developed 126 film cartridge. The 104 was replaced by the 124 in 1968.
