The original selfie camera

img_6047This interesting camera at the George Street Camera was one of the first to make it possible for someone to take a selfie and have an idea how their photo will turn out. The mirror in front was your way of knowing what would be captured in the frame. This device was the closest thing they had to an iPhone’s front facing camera; they both had a screen/mirror that showed what the camera saw. It’s hard to believe how difficult it was to take a selfie back then when today, all we have to do is click a button.
