The Polaroid Ladies Club
I picked this one up because it's an early Polaroid. Despite the company's attempt to position itself as a consumer friendly, on the go, manufacturer of fun photographic products, Polaroid always had a big problem. It wasn't cheap. Even when the camera itself was low cost, the film packs weren't. For a cheap, easy to use camera, the only real choices were the Kodak Instamatic and the 110 cartridge cameras. And in the end, both companies got left behind in the digital race.
Written on the back, "Easter Sunday, April 17, 1960" In 1960, all Polaroid camera film had a paper peal off back. The discolored areas are where the paper backing didn't come off as it should have. Basically, the print didn't develop evenly.
