As we reassume the position, we might recall that it was on this date 1884 that George Eastman was granted U.S. Patent #306,594 for paper-strip photographic film.  At a time when photography required heavy glass dry plates to reproduce images, Eastman was on a quest to “make the camera as convenient as the pencil”;  this was the first of several inventions that allowed him to introduce the simple box camera, the Kodak camera, four years later.
