Ephemera Photograph by Jeffrey Sward

Antique batteries for film cameras. A recent reorganization of the battery drawer in the refrigerator resulted in an archeological discovery of camera batteries from the film era. All of these batteries were manufactured no later than 2003. Decided to document the find before dispatching the batteries to the recycler. Then as now, no two cameras take the same battery, including button cells. Today nearly everything is proprietary rechargeable lithium ion. In the film era batteries were generally one-use alkaline or silver oxide. (batt0230a)
