Century Camera on a tripod

Century Camera was founded in 1900 by three disgruntled employees of the Rockester Optical Company (NY). It was bought out by George Eastman (Kodak) in 1903, but the name remained in use until the 1920s. The camera was donated by Martha Goetz as a memorial for Robert Vaughn Goetz.
