KODAK BOX , 1930's

'Brownie' was the name of a long-running and extremely popular series of simple and inexpensive cameras made by Kodak, the first Brownie was introduced in 1900 and was made of cardboard, as is this one.

The Brownie popularized low-cost photography and introduced the concept of the snapshot.

Your comments:

  • I have never taken any picture with this camera, I recently bought it in a antic shop. But since I am collecting old cameras, I had to have it.
    Everything are functioning on the camera, but it is difficult to get a
    120 film today. I have a collection of 31 cameras from different
    periods, from 1915 and up.

  • My Mother used one of these and I also used it until I was about 18 years old, have many of the photographs still.... I also still have the camera.

  • My mum used this type of camera when I was little, I still have the tiny black and white photos that she took when we were on holiday, seeing it brings back very happy memories.
