125 years ago, George Eastman introduced the second Kodak camera ever made. The contraption looked almost nothing like the devices we're used to, but it brought photography into the homes of everyday people at a fairly reasonable price of $25 -- a cost that amounts to around $600 today. Thanks to the National Media Museum, we're able to look back on history and peruse some of the very first amateur photographs ever taken. these images provide a striking glimpse into life in the 1890s.
