Brownie Reflex

In een museum in Friesland zag ik deze camera. Het label zegt USA 1957-1962 maar op de camera staat "MADE IN ENGLAND". Heeft iemand van jullie ooit zo'n camera gehad?

In a museum in Friesland I saw this camera. The label says USA 1957-1962 but on the camera "MADE IN ENGLAND" . Has someone of you ever had such a camera?

Very nice

On May 31, 1954, I received as a gift a Brownie camera very much like this, but I no longer have it and do not remember the details.

Most of those I saw were actually brown in color instead of the black. But yes I remember these before this date though.

I was born during that time span so NOPE, I do not remember seeing a camera like that one.

My brother had a little box brownie back in the 1950's but I've never seen one like that. I'm surprised the museum let you take the picture.
Believe it or not Dick, I have lived on an island for a short time. Key West, Florida.

I can't even imagine shooting photos with a camera like that.

Hi Dick, Nee helaas niet, waar is dit museum precies in Friesland? Gewoon voor de weet, wnat als we er 'in de buurt zijn' wie weet kunnen we een bezoek afleggen,(graag antwoord via/op mijn blog)

Wist je dat er een foro-museum in Doesburg is? Ja echt heel mooi museum met oude camera's de moeite waard voor een bezoekje...
