I left Polaroid for Hasselblad in 1987, so this has to be around '85-86. It's the US marketing and sales support team, photographed in Polaroid's costume studio, then at Quincy Market in Boston. And if I shared it years ago, I don't remember, but that doesn't change its throwback status. And yes, that's me in the middle in the back...LOL
Nothing beats the smiles photographs like this bring back - and while the scan leaves a little to be desired, it's one of the few SX-70 shots that hasn't cracked over the years.
As I've written so many times in the past, half the fun of Thursdays is the hunt for old photographs, followed by wondering whatever happened to a lot of old friends! If you're not already in the habit of looking for old photographs and memories on Thursdays, it's time to start. It's a perfect way to remember the incredible career path we all chose coming into imaging!
Happy Throwback Thursday!
