    I though some of you might find this article, and the photos, as interesting as I did:

    14 Amateur Photos Taken With the Very First Consumer Camera

    "Introduced in 1888, the Kodak No. 1 was the first camera marketed to average consumers. And thanks to a new set of images from the National Media Museum, we can now see what kinds of photos these early amateurs shot."​

    What I found most interesting was the circular format, and how well it suits some of the subjects. The image of the two guys on the deck of a boat is excellent in that respect.

    That's my favourite picture of the group, followed by the lady with her hand on her hip, and the kid poking a stick in the water.
