In an instant and then it's gone

  Edwin Land introduced the first Polaroid Land "instant" camera on February 21, 1947, the first camera sold about one year later.
  Mr. Land worked at Research Row in Boston and developed a method for chemical reaction that could be contained in a "film packet" layers of emulsion would make a negative of the photo and a by-product would print the picture.  Don't ask me how.
  The name was changed to Polaroid after Mr. Land retired in 1982, and the last camera model was introduced in 1983.  Digital photography stuck Polaroid hard when people discovered that they could take a photo and print it at home.
