The founder of Kodak, George Eastman, narrates a Keynote slide program as he describes the progressive culture of his home town, Rochester N.Y. which influenced his life. He explains the three events that changed his life and world photography forever: the Grand Canyon, Santa Domingo and a bank clerk. The founding and rise of the Eastman Kodak Company is an amazing story. In 1895, Eastman Kodak was producing 90% of all the film in the world. The little yellow box could be found in stores from California, to Russia, France, Wales, Australia, Egypt and Tasmania. Eastman shows photographs of several distinctive Kodak cameras from 1896-1936 with demonstrations of their features. The Brownie camera made snapshots possible by anyone anywhere.
