Studio Camera

Studio CameraOriginally owned by John B. Townsend who operated a photography studio at 1826 Hamilton Street from 1914 to 1932, this studio camera and its wooden case went through a succession of owners and was still in use by photographer Ed McCann when purchased by the museum in 1988. It took pictures of Regina residents for over 70 years.

Trivia

The first camera for amateur use was the Kodak, developed by George Eastman in 1888. This important invention established photography as one of the most groundbreaking innovations of the 19th century.
