Kodak Eastman Folding Vest Pocket

Kodak Eastman Folding Vest Pocket, Stati Uniti d’America – 1912 

The Vest Pocket Kodak, produced from 1912 to 1926, is the evolution of the Pocket Kodak.

Pocket Kodaks were a series of cameras made by Kodak starting from 1896. Advertised as “the camera you can put in your pocket”, the 1912 Vest Pocket Kodak will be even smaller. It’s also known as the “soldier’s camera” because of the widespread use at the WWI front lines, thanks to the practicality, ease of use and its small size.
