"Everyone photographed" was the slogan in 1900 that the Amsterdam photo trader Joan Guy the Coral encouraged the people to go photograph and buy a hand camera. At the end of the nineteenh century, it was mainly prosperous young people with an interest in new gadgets that brought the Netherlands to photograph. From their common interests as cycling, they founded associations, held soirees and went on excursions.
This is a photo dating from 1892 on board of a ship and shows how the amateurs made completely other photos of each other than the stately portraits so far.
There were many photoalbums exposed.
With very small photos.
And some old hand cameras of course.
