ENGLAND - AUGUST 06: A snapshot photograph of a woman at the seaside, taken by an unknown photographer in about 1918. A woman trawls the surf for shrimps, a popular seaside delicacy. This photograph was taken using an Autographic Kodak Junior camera. First introduced in 1914, the camera included a stylus with which the user could 'write' onto the film backing paper. The Autographic feature was used on all popular Kodak cameras, except for the Brownie box cameras, until the early 1930s. Originally a shooting term, the word 'snapshot' was first linked with photography in the late 1850s, when it was used to describe a photograph taken with a brief exposure. Over time, snapshot came to mean any amateur photograph taken with a simple camera. (Photo by SSPL/Getty Images)
