Kodak Argentina started its activities on 8 November 1915, being the first subsidiary of the Kodak Company in Latin America.
Variations in subminiature cameras and their accessories are presented in photographs including history, specifications and estimates of current value. Tips on photographic technique, general maintenance and repairs along with repair manuals and a large library of instruction manuals and literature relating to these cameras spanning over 60 years.

The advertisements used in this project come from The Wayne P. Ellis Collection of Kodakiana in the Hartman Center. Mr. Ellis, who died in 1994, was a Pennsylvania engineer and avocational collector. Unlike many collectors of photographic memorabilia, Ellis concentrated on advertising and marketing items. He acquired virtually every Eastman Kodak ad that appeared in general interest magazines up to the 1980s. He also assembled long runs of Kodak publications for consumers, camera dealers, and professional photographers. His collection also includes unique documents about the company, a small number of early Kodak snapshots, and various promotional items.

The main feature of this site (eventually) will be a virtual museum of Classic & Antique Cameras and related Photographic Ephemera. The Collection and the the owner are just wonderful!
