I used a handy link from Pam's House of Hawthorne's blog on Brownie cameras. The link led me to the www.brownie-camera.com website where I found my (new) old camera. This Brownie was produced from May 1949 until it was discontinued in July 1961. This model was one of the most popular cameras of its time, and is still popular as it is easy to use and still affordable.
This is the type of camera that my Mom used to take my pictures when I was a child. I am buying back my childhood again!
I found this Brownie camera under the cloche at a garage sale last summer for $1.50.
The Brownie Starflash was produced between 1957 and 1965.
The familiar square black and white photograph taken with a Brownie camera in the mid 1960's. Here I am in a gunny sack Indian dress, yarn wig, headdress and beads made for my girl scout Halloween party by my Grandma. My little brother is on the right.
Do you collect Brownie cameras?
