Default Who Am I #2

I share the same name as the town I was founded in. I am 133 years old. While I am mostly known as a film manufacture I also made many different styles of cameras.

My original trade mark was the - paddle steamer. But some time after World War Two someone thought it was old and changed it to Faces and Places. My updated logo that you now see came about in 1965.

If votes went a little different in 1902 our film boxes might be yellow today.

Well we know it isn't Kodak but it was the company that they almost considered merging with back around 1918. The board of this company turned down the offer.
