Samuel Noble and his camera. Camera from the George Eastman Museum

Always drawn to photography, Sam operated a photo finishing business in the 1950s while living in Harper Woods, MI. He later opened a camera manufacturing company where he built a unique 35mm camera designed to hold three rolls of film at one time allowing a photographer to quickly change between film types. Later he partnered with Charles Helin, inventor of the Flatfish fishing lure, to manufacture the first pocket camera utilizing a film cartridge.
