a) The adding machine is a rectangular shape which is thicker on one side. On the top there are 27 white buttons in rows of three each row is numbered 1-9. On the left there is a black row of buttons marked 1-9 and on the right there are two rows of black buttons marked 1-9 also. On the left there is an orange button marked 'Total' and a blue button marked 'Sub Total'. On the right is an orange button marked 'Repeat'. There is a lever on the right hand side of the machine. On the top there is a roll of paper attached to metal so it can be fed through to be used as receipts. b) The roll of brown paper for printing receipts.
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."
