Pocket Kodak (Red)

|The Pocket Kodak camera is very
important in the evolution of the "amateur" camera. This was the series that
bridged the gap between the original Kodaks and the Brownies. The Pocket Kodak brought to
the amateur convenience, simplicity, small size, daylight loading, and the relatively low
price of only $5.
The camera is quite small, measuring only 2¼x3x4 inches. This particular example is the 3rd of 4 models produced in 1895, and is the model produced in fine-grained red leather.
