Old Camera

My object is a old fashion camera and it’s from my family in Florida. It is three generations old and means a lot to my family. It was my great grandfather’s and he passed it down. He passed it down to my grandfather, Brian Apps, who then passed it down to Angela Apps, my mother. It was used in the late 1800s to 1900s. It worked in the bright sun and bright shade. It looks very different in comparison to cameras today. 
The camera has its own case and it’s made with suede and leather. The case is attached by yarn.  Its very special to me and my family its also a memory of my grandfather and I loved him dearly. He passed away in 2016 so the camera is even more special to my family today.

Place(s): Florida
Year: 1890
