With a stack of prints you could show your friends for free with little or no planning whatsoever.
I was a print guy until about 1968, when I started shooting some slides. By 1973 I was exclusively slide-only (except for some occasional black and white negatives).

As for showing shots to my friend, I was more of a big production kind of guy, with Ektagraphic projector, nice seats, the works. Also, slides were almost the required medium for color publication (few publishers would even consider working from a color print)---so that's why I stuck with it as long as I did.
