Kodak Music

performed by Jeff Barnhart

The popularity of the Kodak camera was great during the early 20th century, and music was one way of expressing excitement about this new technology. Music also helped advertise the product and bring the Kodak name together with the camera.

Here are three "Kodak" tunes from around the turn of the century, performed by Jeff Barnhart.
