It’s a Snap!: George Eastman’s First Photograp hy Monica Kulling George Eastman had a new hobby: photography.
The year was 1877, and photography was not as easy as you might think. It cost a lot and the equipment was bulky, but George was about to change all that. What he lacked in formal education, George more than made up for in ingenuity: he invented dry plates, film, and the Brownie camera! The rest is history. For anyone who has ever taken a picture or posed for one, It’s a Snap! George Eastman’s First Photograph, with its playful, informative text and lively illustrations, is a splendid introduction to biography, to photography, and to the amazing man who had so much to do with putting picture-taking within reach of us all. The National Museum of Industrial History is excited to start its brand new Young Reader's Program. This engaging series features award-winning children's literature to educate and inspire younger generations with stories of industrial history.
