The Rough Draft

If you can't go through it. Go around it.

This post is about photography but brought to you on my bike.

The Eastman Mansion is of course the home George Eastman of Eastman Kodak built for himself after the sales of the Brownie Camera and the celluloid film stock he’d developed made him the tenth richest man in America.

He was an amature chemist who brought photgraphy from the realm of the huge land cameras and colloidal coatings to a package you could carry with you and film you developed off of a roll. I loved Kodak Kodachrome film and I always liked the warmth of their Gold film as well.

George Eastman was a bit of a prickly figure but my theory is he was OCD or Asperger’s  or both which would explain his need to micromanage and his love of numbers and data.

This is the original front entry. The current entry is through the rear of the property where the auditorium and gallery displays are.

An early projector.

Explaining the Technicolor process…

The largest collection of remaining Technicolor dyes in the world.

The view from the walkway to the garden on your way to the main house.

The Breakfast room where George Eastman ate breakfast at 7:30am sharp every morning. He had an organist on staff who played for him every morning. This is three combined images.

A more formal and intimate dining room.

A panorama of the music room.
