Week 35 - Kodak Vest Pocket Autographic Camera

These cameras were made by the million in the 1910's and 1920's. They were part of the mass market use of cameras in the early 20th century. The name "Vest Pocket" or "VP" was used for the 127 rollfilm format, and gave an indication of how small the cameras were when folded. During World War I it was marketed as "The Soldier's Camera".
This one belonged to my late grandfather, he would have used it for family snaps in the 1930s, I've almost certainly got some prints somewhere...
