History Of Use
This adding machine was originally owned by Tom McMartin, a bookkeeper who worked at the Watson's store. When this adding machine was in use, the employees were paid in a lump sum at the end of the month, so the adding machine was very valuable! Tom McMartin took the machine with him when he started working in the C.N.R. building. Mr. Joe McDonald took over Toms's job and his machine. When more updated machines came out, Joe took the machine home with him, and later donated it to the B.V. Museum.

History Of Use
Although this small artifact looks like a pin, it does not have an actual pin component with which to affix it to clothing, etc. In addition, no other pins from the Bulkley Valley Fair have ever been discovered. Thus, this item was likely originally part of a prize ribbon; small buttons were sometimes affixed to the center of ribbons (see 2019.10.2 and 2019.10.3 for examples).

Narrative
KODAK Milestones bookley, found in Camera file. Pg. 4-5. Dates to look at are 1885 & 1888 & 1890.
History Of Use
Kodak's first folding camera was introduced in 1890. It could produce 48 four by five-inch pictures. Advertisements for Kodak cameras now read: 'Seven styles and sizes.' The Kodak's founder was George Eastman. The name 'Kodak' was born in 1888. He wanted a short word that could be spelled and pronounced easily in any language. The Number One KODAK Camera was placed on the market in 1888. Loaded with enough EASTMAN American Film for 100 pictures, it sold for $25. The camera and exposed film were returned to Rochester to have the film developed, prints made, and the camera reloaded - all for $10. This was the beginning of the "complete system of photography." Widespread publicity appeared in national magazines, and Eastman coined a slogan for his new system: You press the button-we do the rest."

Description
Camera is enclosed within a black square box with a handle on top. The camera has red bellows.
History Of Use
The Kodak No. 4 Cartridge Camera was a camera for the more advanced amateur photographer because it had some settings, like horizontal and vertical shift of the lens board, that were of no use to the snap-shooter. Several lens and shutter combinations were offered for this camera, which ranged from the simple Rapid Rectilinear Lens and Triple Action Shutter to a high quality Bausch & Lomb Zeiss Tessar, with a Volute shutter. Cartridge Kodaks were primarily daylight loading roll film cameras, but all of them could be transformed into glass plate cameras by exchanging the roll film back panel with a plate back. The plate back option made it easier to persuade photographers who had their doubts about switching from glass plate to roll film technology. Despite its advanced functions and glass plate back option, the Cartridge Kodak was also a suitable camera for amateurs and even tourists. It was possible to take a snap-shot with it because the proper distance could be set on a scale on the base board, and the camera could be aimed with the help of the small reflex finders. It could also be held in your hand while taking the picture. It was advertised as a cyclist’s camera and several styles of bicycle cases were offered. The No. 4 Cartridge Kodak was the most successful of the range. More than 90,000 were produced from 1897 to 1907.
