Pre-1918 Cameras

At the turn of the last century when the original 120 format film made by Kodak became available photographers were no longer tied to large glass plate negative, mahogany and brass cameras that needed a small regiment to move around.

Wood was still used in the camera bodies, but they became smaller and lighter, allowing 'the common man' to enjoy this new pass time.

These are the earliest cameras I posses, the Ensigns being older than the Kodaks.
