Somebody really didn't want his picture taken

My god, look at that crowd.  No wonder Expo topped fifty million in six months.

What amazes me is, how fast could your camera snap pictures?  That's kinda as fast as a digital camera on a phone let's you.

Seems to me those pictures were taken in a time span of 3 seconds.

I grew up in the 80s, and hardly remember what cameras were like back then.

A few cameras had motor drive or spring-wound drive, but most required a stroke of the winding lever; so getting one picture per second was pushing it. 

Also, it was unusual to take so many shots because of the cost of film and developing.

The high vantage point may be from holding the camera overhead, which would explain the multiple shots as "insurance" - hoping one would work.

He looks like Bob Newhart.  Maybe he called in to work that day claiming to be sick.

I was thinking more like Fish from "Barney Miller."
