Century Camera Co. was founded in 1900 by three former employees of Rochester Optical Co. The company achieved a high quality of its plate cameras, so that it had a 25% market share in 1902. In 1905, the company was purchased by the Rochester Panoramic Camera Co. In 1908 the company became Kodak's Century Camera Division which continued the brand Century until 1920.
