Young man with box camera, c 1900.

A man wearing a bowler hat, jacket and pin-stripe trousers, holding a box camera. These cameras were extremely simple to use, even for children. Literally a cardboard box with a wooden end, they took perfectly good photographs, and made photography more accessible for non-professionals.
