Discovering Cameras 1945-1965 Summary

Discovering Cameras 1945-1965 by Robert White

This book traces the changes in the years from 1945 to 1965 when there were considerable advances in photography and in cameras. At the start of the period most snapshot photographs were black and white contact prints made from box and folding bellows camera negatives, by the end snapshooters enjoyed the simplicity of instant loading cameras, automatic exposure control, built-in flash and colour prints.

About Robert White

Robert White became interested in the history of the camera whilst still a pharmacy research student at London University in the late 1950s. He then joined the pharmaceutical industry, where he worked until his early retirement in 1991. As well as collecting all manner of cameras, photographic books, accessories and printed ephemera, he has lectured, worked as a photographic museum volunteer, written many magazine articles, and the Shire book Discovering Old Cameras 1839-1939. His wife, who is also a pharmacist, has patiently suffered his filling the family home with cameras and books, since she enjoys collecting herself and has more recently persuaded her husband to join her in her own interest of drawing and painting.
