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.
