Day #3331Title: Historical Records
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 45mm f2.8 Leica DG Macro-Elmarit ASPH
Notes: More turning out of old stuff today, I’m getting there, but there is still much to do. The office was my target. I unearthed this handwritten ledger from the depths of a cupboard. I’ve always been a meticulous record-keeper, some may say to the point of obsession. The very first entry was for Roll 1 in April 1981, after I inherited my grandfather’s Ilford Sportsman 35mm camera, which I took on a school trip to Le Touquet (I was 12). It runs through 149 rolls (with details of what’s on each frame of every roll), up to July 1992. The reason I stopped keeping paper records? I wrote my first relational database in the then-just-released Paradox for Windows. That long-ago morphed into an Access database which I still use today. So although my records are now electronic, this old tome is not going anywhere.
