Description

    George Eastman- Chicago, Rock Island & Pacific Railway Company (New York)
    A 1899 dated $5000 bond in blue and black bearing 4% interest. The certificate is issued to the Eastman Kodak Company and is signed on the verso as Treasurer by George Eastman. At the age of 23 Eastman spent $94 on photographic equipment and learned the intricacies of photographic print development. He realized the need for a smaller and lighter camera and more practical development process. In 1884 he devised a transparent and flexible film, which was placed into production a year later. The late 1880's began a long association with Thomas Edison and Eastman emerged as one of America's leading industrialists in the 1890's. Punch cancelled not affecting the Eastman signature. Extremely Fine.
