She took FIRST place (Blue ribbon).

One of the most memorable cameras that Victoria research was the “Mammoth” camera invented in the 1900’s. The camera was about the size of a room. The camera was first invented to take the first picture of the first train. The original camera was not big enough to take the picture…. or maybe the train was too large, lol.

Another camera that Victoria liked was the “Pill Camera.” That camera is swallowed by patiences so the doctors can view the inside of a person.

Very interesting as well!
