Eastman House and Museum

George Eastman was a very interesting man. His company Kodak created photography as we know it today. Before his inventions, Photography required huge pieces of equipment that were very expensive and required complex processing. His product could be hand carried, take multiple photos, then sent off to be processed and the camera reloaded.

The Eastman House and the attached theater and museum is a must do. Spring has not arrived, so the gardens are bare. I will visit again once the gardens are in bloom and will add to this article. For now, enjoy these images.

One of the displays in the museum is very depressing. Just joking, well maybe. I have owned or used the five cameras in the front. The second one is a brownie which is similar to one that was the first camera that I used. Out of this photo is another camera, the first digital camera I owned.

An organist might not always be around, so these organs had player rolls as well. Here are a few that are in the house.
