From its early days, photography was considered a suitable pastime, and even profession, for women; and when Kodak developed mass-market cameras in the 1890s, it chose an ideal of American femininity - the modern, adventurous 'Kodak Girl' - as its publicity mascot. This handsomely produced photographic collection mixes Kodak advertising material from the first two decades of the 20th century with the work of early women studio photographers and miscellaneous snapshots, showing the Kodak Girl's influence on contemporary women.
