The Kodak Generation
In 1900, George Eastman took mass-market photography one step further with the introduction of the Kodak Brownie, a simple and very inexpensive box camera that introduced the concept of the snapshot. The Brownie was extremely popular and various models remained on sale until the 1960s.
Thanks to Kodak, photography became available to everyone, and people were able to capture their “precious memories” forever.
The Latimer Family were no exception with their Kodak. They were now able expand their “photograph albums” from the staged “studio family portraits” to their every day life.

Note written by Gladys Latimer to Anne Nyland (undated)
Mrs. W. cut a squash for me this a.m. and I cut vegetables to go in the soup. We put away the Christmas things that go upstairs; unused cards, tablemats, tablecloths serviettes. My violets are dying, one after the other for no apparent reason.
Aunt Debbie DeWolfe was a Dixie. Grandmother Scott’s full sister, also full brother Uncle Tom. He married a Dobbs and took over the Dobb’s place. His wife had 2 sisters, not married, one very bad with asthma who lived there. Mother boarded with them when she taught the school in the Dobbs settlement. They had no children and as Uncle Tom got older, little Billie Dixie came to live there. He was the son of great grandfather’s second wife. He and Mother were about the same age even though he was Grandma Scott’s half brother. He and Mother had a great time together, lots of fun and she says she thinks these old sisters had never known what fun was before. Mother& Billie never lost that close friendship and Mother was very fond of his wife, Nellie.
Aunt Debbie had one son, Charlie. He was seriously wounded in the first world war, a head wound, had a plate in it. At times it would press on his brain and he took what was called “high dives” He married a RC from Montreal; they had no children. Mother said he used his wife terribly, made a will trying to prevent her from getting anything but she got a share by law. She gave mother some goblets and a very old tiny pitcher. Uncle Og DeWolfe worked in the brickyard where the Prince of Wales School is now.
Another family of DeWolfs had a Dixie for a mother. I don’t know if a sister. They had a daughter Lori, married to a Cowan who had a daughter Rita, married to a Tisdale who used to come to Lily Bay every summer. Also there was a son “Ur” and he was Bernice Nicol’s father. When I can get to talk to Lawrence Dixie he will tell me that connection.
Marion H. and I went to see Mrs. B last Mon. but I told Mario it was the last in the winter. The parking lot is all on a slant. Wed. I went down and renewed a GLC, got home just before the storm began ? . If this bores you tell me because when I write I don’t tell other things. Love Nina
