Object of the Week - Brownie Camera

The Brownie camera was introduced to the market by Kodak Eastman in February 1900.  It was a very basic cardboard box camera with a simple lens.  It was cheap to buy and became extremely popular.  The name Brownie is derived from the 'brownies' in a popular Palmer Cox cartoon of that period.

This model No. 3 is made of wood and leather dating from 1909-1915.

Sunday 18th June 2017 is International Brownie Camera Day!
