Polaroid's first camera was put on sale at Jordan Marsh in downtown Boston just before Christmas 1948.
When Land started the company in the 1930s Kodak bought his first product — the polarizing filter. And for most of the ’50s and ’60s, it manufactured negatives that Polaroid used in its film packs. Land would show off products to Kodak engineer.
