Redbridge Musuem Object of the Week – Kodak Camera

At the heart of Redbridge Museum is a unique collection of over 7000 objects, oral history and film. Once a week we will be selecting one object from Redbridge Museum’s collection to share with you online.

We are sad to say it’s the last few days of our fun, family interactive exhibition Super Science! If you haven’t been to visit yet the exhibition is filled with amazing science facts including the science behind light, optics and astronomy. This fantastic summer exhibition also includes interactive games, puzzles and objects from Redbridge’s past.

One of the objects that may puzzle younger visitors used to the digital world is this 1930s camera. It was used by local resident Fred James who lived in Wanstead and Woodford from 1905 to the 1970s. Throughout this period Fred took many photographs of local life, his travels abroad and his time as an Air Raid Precaution (ARP) Warden during World War II.

To find out more visit the Super Science exhibition open until Saturday 6 September and Museum display A Warden’s Story at Central Library Ilford.
