Clive- I think Blansky's point was that even with the advent of the Brownie, although your average factory worker/farm laborer/shopkeeper could now afford to take photos, they chose to take photos selectively - the camera would come out for the family trip, the child's graduation/birthday, moving into the new house, Thanksgiving dinner, and not the "oh look, I picked my nose and THIS came out" mindset of the Instagram generation.
