Although photography came into existence in the 1830s, it wasn’t until the late 1800s that the activity really became accessible. This was thanks to Kodak, who released the first commercial camera in 1888. It was a leather-covered box that didn’t even have a viewfinder. Nevertheless, the device gave people the ability to become amateur photographers and it created fascinating snapshots of everyday life. Here, a few examples of photos taken with the first Kodak.
