tilthat:

TIL That a 19-Year-old student hid a spy camera in his clothing to take secret street photos in the 1890s, taking pictures of people in a natural state, rather than in the strict posing trends that dominated in photography during those years.

A young man definitely not hiding a camera from the 1890′s in his clothing

Not to detract from joak but here’s what the camera looked like

It was 14cm diameter but the lens poked through a buttonhole in his waistcoat from where it was hanging around his neck, and he has a piece of string from that lever on the side to his trouser pocket to take the photos. (Also! It could hold six four cm photos, so viewing them on your phone screen is probably about full size)

Sure, the actual hiding might not be that great, but who would see that and think “ hidden camera ”. Who would have any possible frame of reference to be able to deduce “ that guy has a camera in his coat, that’s a thing that people do ”.
