I inherited three Hasselblads and two Nikons from my father. I originally got into B&W because it meant I didn't have to go out and spend $1000 on a DSLR---I could just spend ~$10/week on supplies and use the cameras I already owned. Much easier to stomach. I know many other young(er) people that have found themselves in the same boat.
I recently gifted a 21-year-old one of my old, unused SLRs because they had such an interest in analog photography. When I was 21 I didn't know anyone under 50 using film---and DSLRs weren't even what they are today.
