Our Heritage

We are very proud to have the good fortune to be able to carry on the business of Studio Khyber which was started in 1948 by local professional photographer Ruth Dwornik and so imagine our pleasure at receiving the images below sent in to us by Liz Elmore.

Liz was apparently looking for an old Polaroid camera and saw this one in a shop in Norwich.  When she got it home, there inside the original box was the original receipt from 1975!

Click on the images to enlarge them and you'll clearly see Rurh's name across the top of the receipt.

Instant Photos they said and Instant photos you got - well after about one minute that is.
Not cheap though!!

Quite a sum 50 years ago but this was the latest technology of its day. Many professional photographers would take a Polaroid to see what it looked like before taking the film image.
