Custodial history

Scope and content

Item is a black, disposable point-and-shoot camera intended for amateur photographers. It also comes with instructions on how to get your particular brand of film developed and an envelope to mail it in. The Love camera was first developed in 1973 by a Canadian company that originally called it the "Lure", selling it under the name "Love" in the United States. The camera was sold to the Brazilian manufacturer Sonora Industrial in 1981. While the company made a few improvements, the basic design remained simple.
