Say, “Cheese!” This Camera Collection puzzle is a wonderful reminder of the recent history of photography. It wasn’t too long ago that we took photos with cameras, not with devices that perform many functions. Cameras required film, lenses, maybe flash and batteries, and the images took time to develop. With its arrangement of cameras through the years, this 500 piece puzzle is a nostalgic look at a crucial component of our history-recording past. To reduce its impact on the environment, it is made from recycled chipboard and printed with soy inks.
The National Archives keeps only those Federal records that are judged to have continuing value—about 2 to 5 percent of those generated in any given year. By now, they add up to a formidable number, diverse in form as well as in content. There are approximately 10 billion pages of textual records; 12 million maps, charts, and architectural and engineering drawings; 25 million still photographs and graphics; 24 million aerial photographs; 300,000 reels of motion picture film; 400,000 video and sound recordings; and 133 terabytes of electronic data. All these materials are preserved because they are important to the workings of government, have long-term research worth, or provide information of value to citizens.
