Use a camera or video camera

By Davey Ivens

These cameras and ‘cine’ cameras would have been expensive to buy in the 1950s and 1960’s, and were often bought as presents.

Technology has moved on in the last 30 years or so and now many of us only use cameras and video cameras in our mobile phones.

Things to do:

Use the camera or video camera on your mobile phone - or borrow one – to take images of other things around your house, school and neighbourhood that have changed over the years.

  • Think about the technology in your house or school like cameras, phones, music players and computers.
  • What about those household appliances we take for granted, like washing machines, electric toasters, microwave ovens, dishwashers…?
  • Which buildings have changed in your lifetime? Do your friends and families remember special buildings that have been knocked down?

You might want to compare and contrast your images to some of those in the next section, ‘Going, going gone’.
