Eastman Kodak Autographic Camera

Submitted by Curator on Thu, 12/17/2020 - 17:48

The Eastman Kodak Autographic camera was introduced in 1914, and was offered until 1934. The unique feature of this folding bellows camera was that it featured a sliding window that would allow one to "write" on the film with the included stylus.

The canoe has the distinctive decks of the Old Town Canoe Company's  Otca model. It sports a paint design with  "Greek ends."
