This self portrait, looking into a furniture store, was taken by Portland amateur photographer Herman C. Weber, during a trip to Bellingham, Washington. Like many photographers of today, Weber owned more than one camera. This small Brownie box camera was easy to carry when he traveled. Introduced by Kodak in 1900, and built on a cardboard box frame, the Brownie camera initially sold for $1, and became the entry point to photography for millions for much of the next century.
