I think so and it coincides with my scanner acquisition (new toy)

Not a picture by me, but a picture of me taken by my grandfather 36 years ago.
Taken with a Minolta Autopak 700, which certainly should qualify as a "serious compact." Scanned from print.

At the risk of turning this thread into a nostalgia thread, here are three more of mine. I believe they are appropriate for this thread because: (1) they were taken with a "serious compact" (1940s Brownie Reflex, Synchro Model); (2) they were taken on film (Kodak Verichrome Pan, the only B&W film available back then in 127 format as I recall); and (3) I remember having a lot of fun taking them.
The shots were taken in 1977, when I was 11 years old and getting into photography. The camera belonged to my paternal grandfather Juan, and was a very old camera even back then. I still have it, even though it no longer works, along with his Kodak Signet 35, Argus A2F and Minolta Autopak 700.
The photos are of my youngest sister Susana, who was 1 year old at the time, and of my maternal grandfather Rafael, who passed away 11 years ago.
Thank you for putting up with this bit of nostalgia.

Having a lot of fun with my scanner this morning... I promise this will be the last post.
This is a picture of my wife taken when we first started dating in 1994. Canon T90 (not so compact, I suppose), 35-105 FD, on Kodachrome 64.

Well, I've missed some of these until just now. Antonio, I love your walk down memory's lane. No need to apologize!
Bill, I was hoping I might find you here with your arsenal of film cameras and lenses! What a great scene - so much texture and those great clouds! Where was this taken - Spain? You know me, I'm a colonial and once we see Spanish tiled roofs, we just jump to conclusions so easily.
