A Kodak circular snapshot photograph of a narrow boat on a canal, taken by an unknown photographer in 1888.

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.
