Last Friday, (Yes, Black Friday) a few family members and I got to peak into the life of George Eastman (1854 to 1932), founder of Eastman Kodak Company, the camera and film company.
Closeup of portrait made of up of many photos
We visited the 50-room Colonial Revival mansion in Rochester, New York, where Eastman lived from 1905 to 1932. It is now a museum.
To the far right of this photo (and not visible here) is a an organ with huge pipes that transform this mansion into a HUGE pipe organ, An organist was playing when we were there and the sound was phenomenally beautiful for anyone who took the time to soak in the sound.
May I offer you a cup of tea?
But most visitors were touring the house to take in the opulence there, and...
it was definitely a wow experience. As you can see, the mansion was decorated for Christmas.
Stairway to second floor
Fun to see, for sure, but I was disappointed not to see more (although I did see some that I am not showing in this post) of the history of photography.More photos from Our World can be seen by clicking HERE.
