It was purchased loaded with film for 100 pictures. Simple directions instructed the amateurs to "Point the camera, press the button, turn the key and pull the cord." His perfection of the sensitized paper to bold gelatin emulsion was an instant success. Early K.odak pictures are easily recognized by their round images. The meniscus lens made a photo that was sharp in the center so Kodak masked off the edges of the camera and produced a circular print. The original camera made 2 in. pictures which were mounted in cream or chocolate gilt-edged cards. At Rochester, the film was processed and returned with a new roll of film for $10. Because the box camera was not noticed readily it was referred to as the "detective." The staff at the Eastman Dry-Plate and Film Co. were handling about 7O Kodaks a day and 6,000 to 7,000 negatives. In 1889, the Kodak No. 2 was introduced. It featured a 31/2 in. diameter image mounted on a 4% in. by 5% in. cardboard stock. Now, one century Old time photograph of one of James A.

Nowadays just about everything can be photographed with sophisticated equipment that would probably amaz George Eastman. He, like all pioneers in many fields ha, the vision and knowledge to know how to market a commodity that people would use. That's the sow of America. In 1941, in Cloverdale, people were gearing for the war, young people were joining the service and going into defense work. Meanwhile. another era was ending as Dr. Sooy, who had built a large health resort at the Geysers, announced that he could no longer afford the expense and, as the hotel had burned three yearsprior, it was too much to handle. He was retiring to private practice inHeald- sburg. Many famous people had visited the Geysers including President U.S. Gran. Theodore Roosevelt, the fh'ince of Wales, and Jenrv Lind the "Swedish Nightingale.' Mr. and Mrs. Walter Sink celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary with several hundred friends. Waller Sink and Bessie Fuwler were married at the Congregational Church February 2, 1981. They were the third generation to ranch in Oat Valley and their winery, "The Marriette." was named for Mr. Sink's mother, tToday the Sink ranch is still in the family under the management of John T. Sink and his wife, Lucille. And it is still an integral part of Cloverdale's past and present. ) AI the Del-Rio Theatre in 1941. you cuu;d be scared out of your wits by "The Mummy's Hand" featuring Dick Foran, Wallace Ford and I believe the "Mummy" was played by Boris Karioff, famous for his rolls of Frankinstein. On the light side, "Love Thy Neighbor" gave rivals Jack Benny and Fred Allen a chance to insult one another.

Thanks to all who have so far sub- a helps to keep City clean By VIVIAN MENICUCC! because of his concern for the Although retired and living on Social Security because he can't work anymore, 59 year old Ed Cissna spends his days and his time by traveling with his "three wheeler" from one end of Cloverdale to the other picking up all the aluminum cans he finds on the streets. Helping his community by keeping the streets clean is only one of the reasons Ed has for picking up behind the rest of us. He also does it because, as he told me, "I enjoy it. I get a little exercise and I make a little spending money." Ed has two baskets on the back of his three wheeler which is used to carw the cans he collects. In the summer time he makes two or three trips each day on is three wheeler going from Preston Bridge to the First Street by the river and back and all the way to Dutcher Creek and back again. Ed has many friends saving and collecting cans for him including the police department, True Value Hardware, men from Rolando Lumber Co., families in the Tarman Track, and the Depot and Dante Hotel. Ed says with great pride, "Even old Maria saves cans for me!" Deserving of recognitiun, Ed Cissna is admired by many Cloverdale people environment. In his own unique way he is providing a much needed service to his community by picking up the rubbish and garbage the rest of us are piling high on our streets. In appreciation for the job Mr. Cissna is doing, I would like to suggest to the little children (and those not so little) that they talk to the stores they purchase from after school and find a nice, safe, suitable place for a container where they could Ed Cissna.

Geyserville Winery Tour put all those candy wrappers and soda cans instead of throwing them on the streets. It would make it easier for Ed to pick up the cans and everybody would be helping to keep our streets and our community a little cleaner. At the end of our con- versation, with a little twinkle in his eye, Ed said he wished "they" would make all cans instead of bottles, "I'd make a small fortune if they did!"
