Replication The Kodak Box, Eastman Kodak manufactured to celebrate the anniversary of the launch of its Kodak No. 1, the first camera roll the world in 1888. This camera was manufactured by a manufacturer English shoeboxes, commissioned by Kodak, in 1988 including two original brochures (Kodak history and manual). This time, even for a replica, this is a rare and hard to find product. The lot includes a camera drawer The Kodak Box model, the manual that came with the original camera and a small booklet that tells the centenary history of The Kodak. George Eastman, founder of The Kodak, suffered in the late 1800s rejection of professional photographers, but knew reinventing marketing taking a turn for the unexpected and providential. Eastman was able to see the need for an easy to use camera and developed a really simple camera that also came preloaded with a roll of 100 exposures. Once taken 100 photographs should send the camera to Rochester, where employees of Eastman opened the camera, revealing the roll, printed features images round and carried back the camera with a roll of 100 new exhibits, sending him back to the client for only $ 10 at the time. The camera was hyped for this reason with the slogan"" You press the button, we do the rest"" . George Eastman called this Kodak camera, thanks to the success of this product in 1892 the company name changed to Eastman Kodak Company. On the centenary of The Kodak in 1988, a series of 2500 replicas of the Kodak No. 1 were made, also coinciding then with the opening of the Kodak Museum at the National Museum of Photography, Film and Television in Bradford, England 1989. the 2500 replicas were made by craftsmen in traditional workshops the Early Music Workshop in Bradford. Each chamber was individually numbered and is an exact copy (no operation) of the revolutionary Kodak No. 1.
