Toronto. George Dunbar came across this article on Kodak’s work on films and lenses. It appeared as the article “Brains of Sliver — Eyes of Glass” in the April 1930 edition of Science and Invention magazine.

The article covers Kodak’s research into film and lenses and its contribution to Kodak’s famous little VP cameras. The film is the now notorious Nitrate (nitro-cellulose) based film while the huge lens is said to be the largest ever ground in the USA. The lens, for the Army Air service, was likely for use on ¬†an aerial camera, perhaps used to map enemy terrain just over a decade later in WW2.
