    1930's Foto-Fun, Ray-O-Print, Leader Novelty & Sun Pictures Negatives, Prints & Packaging (30 Items). During the 1930's there were a few promotions that consisted of film negatives and slips of paper which allowed the consumer to develop the images. Once opened, the negative could be used to make any number of cards which is might be in part the reason why the concept didn't catch on. Offered is a collection representing four of these types of collectibles.
