Amazing Vintage Christmas Ads of Kodak From the 1900s

Kodak is best known for photographic film products. During most of the 20th century Kodak held a dominant position in photographic film.

From the company’s founding by George Eastman in 1889, Kodak followed the razor and blades strategy of selling inexpensive cameras and making large margins from consumables — film, chemicals and paper.

Here’s an amazing collection of vintage adverts of Eastman Kodak from the 1900s.

  1. The majority look nothing like Middle Eastern/North African Jews! More

  2. The majority look nothing like Middle Eastern/North African Jews, but more like Arabs/Bedouin!

  3. Very interesting. But one photo specifically says Bedouin Sheikh in French on the bottom of the photo! I'd love to know which photos are really Jewish!

  4. Most the Jews who lived in the region during this time were all Arabs.

  5. I really don't like the colorization

    they should have left them alone
