A Pencil Kodak From The Past


This is a scan from one of my 1905 editions of Punch Magazine. As far as I can work out it represents Alfred Lyttelton (the "current" Colonial Secretary) and Joseph Chamberlain (the "past" Colonial Secretary). The thing I love most about it is the description "a pencil Kodak" - what a wonderful phrase that is. Kodak cameras where just capturing the world and pencil sketches must have seemed things of the past. Just like Kodak cameras now.
