A Kodak circular snapshot photograph of a girl playing in a rock pool, taken by an unknown photographer, c. 1890.

The girl bends down to pick something out of the pool. A boat can be seen in the background, and a young boy walks out of the frame.

The photograph was taken with the Kodak camera - a simple, leather-covered wooden box designed for amateur use, which produced circular snapshots two and a half inches in diameter. The camera was sold pre-loaded with film, when the whole film had been exposed the camera was sent back to Kodak who developed it, returning the prints and the reloaded camera.
