125 years of Distinctive Cameras

===========More than a dozen Cameras from 1890s to 1990s will be on exhibit at the  Lyons   Redstone   Museum . On opening day, three professional photographers will be describing the unique features of each camera.   Included will be an informative handout, examples of the photo process ("why is the picture upside down?"), and samples of photography paraphernalia to hold and investigate.

 Lyons is celebrating its 125th year of incorporation, and  Lyons  native Ron Pederson will be digging out of his esteemed archival collection several unique cameras representing each of the different eras. 

 There will be hands-on items to view and interact with.   ~ Which cameras did famous photographers use? See the Brownie that cost $4 new. Check out the subminiature 2" x2" Spy Camera. Wonder at the beauty of the fine wood and brass 8 x 10 glass plate camera. See the inside of a camera.  Study cameras with multiple viewfinders.  Learn how to make a pin hole camera. And more...
