Excellent find, crunchland!

Living in a time when we have so many ways to preserve our history/memories (photos, video, etc.), it's interesting to have a look back at a time when photography was first being marketed to the general public. Although I use a digital camera almost exclusively these days, I still have an affinity for real film cameras -- I certainly wouldn't mind owning my own Kodak Brownie, purely for nostalgic reasons.

Of course, if cameras had never been popularized, then perhaps those embarrassing 70s era photos of my childhood would never have existed, so I'm of two minds about this ;)

I love this stuff, this is a gem of a site, thanks.
And for photography ephemera, history, and ads Kodak Girl is also enjoyable.
