The picture at the top of the page shows two young women looking at, and laughing at, a handful of vacation pictures. The top line claims that this is the "First black-and-white snapshot film that pictures people and places at their best...always". It then says that "On vacation, you take so many different kinds of pictures on the same roll of film. People in shady gardems and on sunny beaches, sports pictures, scenic pictures, flash shots 'round a campfire'. They"ll all turn out beautifully...is you'll just take them on Ansco All-Weather Pan". They picture, near the bottom of the page, a Anscoflex II camera for sale for $18.95. Sounds like a good deal to me.
