My first compact flash card

My first compact flash card has the honour of being the first digital gizmo to make it into my antique camera cabinet. An absolute huge 256MB. When I bought this (I think in 2002), it was cutting edge, pretty much top of the range…at £250.
Today a 16GB card costs around £20 in the UK. Using this price as a guide, 256MB would now cost 32p. But going back to 2002, 16GB would have cost £15,625.
