Description

Over 100,000 of these small wooden cameras were sold in their first year of production, an extraordinarily large number for the time. Around the turn of the 20th century Eastman Kodak pioneered the production of cheap cameras which were simple to use, bringing photography to a mas market. Posibly the most succesful example was the famous Brownie, introduced in 1900, of which this camera is a predecesor.
