The 1930s camera, wood has all but gone except for the cheaper cameras...and some of those hide it. Thousands upon thousands of differing designs come and go as a public hungry for pictures take up photography en masse. The bellows lens bed camera with lots of black paint are still very much in vogue but now chrome plating supersedes nickel plate. Roughly in the middle of the period 35mm cameras with daylight loading cartridges begin to appear.... Bakelite is used for some cameras and aluminium continues to be used for some parts. The Leica arrives, setting a style trend for satin chrome plated top housings and black covered bodies. The style would predominate within a decade... and stay for forty years.
