1903: Dr. Neubronner’s Miniature Pigeon Cameras

Dr. Neubronner's Miniature Pigeon Cameras

“In 1903 Dr. Julius Neubronner patented a miniature pigeon camera activated by a timing mechanism. The invention brought him international notability after he presented it at international expositions in Dresden, Frankfurt and Paris in 1909–1911. Spectators in Dresden could watch the arrival of the camera-equipped carrier pigeons, and the photos were immediately developed and turned into postcards which could be purchased.”

    Aw, carrier pigeons. Seeing them always makes me sad. The pictures they got from the pigeon cams were pretty cool though.
