Century Camera Div., EKC (1907)
Folmer-Century Div., EKC
Century opened its doors in 1900, which explains its name. In 1903, George Eastman
bought a controlling interest. In 1905, the company acquired the Rochester Panoramic
Co., which made the popular Circuit camera (not covered here). In 1907 the company
began its long and inevitable absorption into EKC, eventually only existing through the
camera names it coined.
