Remember the days when we didn't have a camera in our pockets 24/7?
It's often difficult to recall such a time; grabbing a photo today is a simple matter of unlocking your smartphone and aiming it at someone. However, a few decades ago photos were limited to how many snaps you had left on the roll of actual film, and unless you were fancy enough to own a Polaroid camera, you'd have to physically leave the house to get them developed (which often incurred a wait of a few days as well). By the time you got the photos back, you'd usually forgotten what they were of (which was a wonderful experience in itself, if we're honest).
Despite all of these roadblocks, it's often the case that these images from the past carry more weight than a million modern-day smartphone snaps, especially when they involve the playing of video games.
