Footprint River 1973
That's Dad on the left, then me, and then Mom's parents. I was too young to remember their visits up north, but Mom tells me that they both enjoyed northern Manitoba very much. So did I!
Oddly enough I do remember Grandma's camera, which you can see in her left hand. That particular model - I'm pretty sure it was a Kodak - used a disposable flash, which you plugged into the top of the camera. I think it was good for four flashes; you'd have to rotate the flash after each use. Photographers these days are pretty spoiled, but I wouldn't go back for anything.
