This annual display in the historic mansion provides a glimpse of George Eastman’s life and work one hundred years ago. The new selection of objects highlights the goings on in 1923—most notably the release of the Ciné-Kodak and 16mm motion picture film and a 10-week expedition in the Cassiar region of Alaska and British Columbia, which became his favorite camping destination for the remainder of his life.
