• First camera to summit Mt. Everest?
• $7.50 in 1925 ($93 in 2010 dollars)
George Mallory, 38, and Andrew Irvine, 22, attempted climbing Mt. Everest in June 1924. They were last seen on June 8, within reach of the summit, but they were not seen alive again. Mallory's body was discovered on May 2, 1999, but neither of the two Kodak Vest Pocket Model B cameras they were carrying have been found. If they ever are, the pictures might tell whether they died before or after summiting.
