Newspaper advertising illustrates the reach and popularity of products in their time. These Kodak advertisements for Kodak No. 1 and the first Brownie camera show how much these products appealed to the masses. Kodak created the “snapshot” and the amateur photographer. With the introduction of these products, picture-taking became not only easy, but extremely popular. For example, in the Brownie ad, a child uses the camera to take a photo of friends, showing how easy it was to use a camera. Kodak offered people an inexpensive and simple camera, which they immediately began using. To this day, Kodak remains one of the most popular names in the professional and public worlds of photography.
