The First Amateur Shots Taken with a Kodak

Woman at a market stall, about 1890

In 1926 George Eastman invented the Kodak camera, it was the world’s first handheld camera! It retailed for around $25 ($600 in today’s money) so it wasn’t cheap but those with a few extra bucks could definitely afford one.

Although the technology has changed a lot, one things has remained the same, people love to take photos!
