Picture taken on July 18, 1930. Bud's 3rd Birthday. Best guess is the picture is taken at the Wheaton house in Elk River. If correct the woman in the picture could be Irene and Kendall's grandmother on the Wheaton side of the family. This picture is of much better quality because it is a scan of a relatively undamaged (only slightly scratched) negative instead of the faded and damaged prints that most of the pictures are scanned from. The negative is a size called 116. So what kind of camera did Sam and Helen Houlton have? 116 is a roll film introduced by Eastman Kodak in 1899 for 2½×4¼ inch negatives (nominally 6.5×11 cm which is huge when compared to 35mm film). The film stock is 70mm wide: wider than that of 120 film (or medium format), which is why there is nice depth and tonal range in the picture (generally the larger the negative the more detail, tonal range and overall quality a picture will have). 116 film was discontinued by Kodak in 1984. Kodak produced several cameras that shot 116 film, including versions of the famous Kodak Brownie Camera and also many versions of what were referred to as Kodak Folding cameras. Sadly I don't know what kind of camera the picture was taken with, my best guess would be one of the 116 versions of the Kodak Brownies. The lenses on Brownies while good were not great, so the picture is not what I would call razor sharp. It is quite good for a family photo however. I wish I had all the negatives instead of just one! The print pictures in this series (the ones with the toy peddle car) are the same size as the negative. In other words it is a one to one print size, no enlargement. While small in size about 2½×4¼ (small for a print, large for a negative), the prints would be of a high quality. That is, if the exposure is correct and the focus is sharp. Unfortunately this is not the case with many of the pictures. Also after 80 plus years the pictures have deteriorated through age and poor storage. Lots of scratches. Again that is why I like the picture above. The scan is from the negative, the exposure is correct and the focus in sharp. The difference is quality is remarkable. Especially for an 80 plus year old picture.
