Did the Kodak camera make it possible to record emotion? Photographers could capture emotions easily with shorter exposure times with Kodak film cameras introduced in 1888. The subsequent craze for smiling images taken outdoors can be summed up in relaxed images like this one of Mary Henderson, circa 1910, on her holiday abroad. Just as we snap and share selfies today, our great-grandparents took huge numbers of photos, made albums and sent their favorites to friends and family.
