The digital age has revolutionized the way photographers take pictures, but one store in Cleveland, Ohio, is dedicated to evoking nostalgia in its customers.

The Aperture Photography and Variety Store is home to rare cameras that date back decades. Polaroids cameras, Holga cameras and film can be found on the store's shelves for amateur and professional photographers alike. It opened earlier this fall, according to Cleveland.com, and has attracted a surprising amount of attention.

"I started getting interested in Polaroids and vintage cameras about five years ago," owner Scott Meivogel told the website. "And I found there were tons of people interested in it, especially Polaroids and Holga and Diana cameras. They have a real cult following."

Prices on these cameras, all of which are still in good working condition, range from $50 to $200. Meivogel also has a personal in-shop studio that he eventually hopes to open to the public for teaching purposes.

Photography jobs are expected to increase 12 percent over the next eight years, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. The rare devices that can be found at Aperture are not only valuable collector's items, but teaching tools for students in photography school as well.
