Description
Camera is rectangular, black-silver in colour. There is a hinge door on the back for loading film. Kodak is written on the front in red letters, Instamatic in bold silver letters.
History Of Use
The Kodak Instamatic was a solidly built, compact snapshot camera with the unusual feature of a retractable housing for the Kodar lens, which made this camera easy to fit in a pocket. Flash was provided by flashcubes, and the film was advanced by the knob on the right-hand end of the body. As noted on some other cameras, the lower of the two shutter speeds was only available when a flashcube was fitted, and the fitting of a used cube or the removal of the batteries was the recommended means of obtaining exposure in less than sunny conditions. The rather obvious shutter release also retracted when the lens housing was pushed home, as seen on the Instamatic S-20. The Kodak Instamatic S-20 was manufactured from 1967-1971 and retailed for $58.50. Cameras in the Instamatic series from Kodak were known as easy-loading, easy-to-use point-and-shoot cameras. They took 126 film and were hugely popular.

History Of Use
The Kodak Instamatic 124 was part of the Instamatic 126 film series, which was recognized by a very sober front face. The 124 camera had two-speeds: the 1/40 and the 1/90 sec. The passage from one speed to another was done by the connection of a flashcube. The Instamatic was immensely successful, introducing a whole generation of amateur photographers to low-cost photography, selling at the low cost of just $16.95. In its prime, this camera was used everywhere, so much so that the Instamatic name is still frequently and incorrectly used to refer to any inexpensive point-and-shoot camera.

History Of Use
A spirit duplicator (also referred to as a Ditto machine in North America, Banda machine in the UK or Roneo in France and Australia) was a printing method invented in 1923 by Wilhelm Ritzerfeld and commonly used for much of the rest of the 20th century. The term "spirit duplicator" refers to the alcohols which were a major component of the solvents used as "inks" in these machines. The device coexisted alongside the mimeograph. Spirit duplicator technology gradually fell into disuse starting in the 1970s after the availability of low-cost, high-volume xerographic copiers. (Source: Wikipedia, "Spirit Duplicator", accessed November 2017). Likely used by the School District to create copies of documents for use by students (handouts, tests, etc.).
