Brownie


It all started here with a camera just like this.  This Kodak Brownie was exactly like my very first camera.  Oh the fun I had with that camera.  I saw this one sitting on a display at the Saguaro Hotel in Scottsdale.  It sure brought back memories for me.

I am always just one step away from starting a camera collection.

Back in the 1950s almost every American family had a Brownie camera. I looked at its history quickly on line and I didn't know that it was first introduced in 1900 at a price of $1! It certainly became a staple in most households!

I am desperately trying to find my first one: a Comet...

My first camera was a Magimatic. It was terrible!

The way you photographed it makes it look more modern than it actually is. Who knew camera would advance this far?!

I had one too.
Now, after the Brownies, please give the Blue Birds and the Girl Scouts equal time.
hehehehehehe Sorry.

A real blast from the past, Sharon!

I have one of those. Not sure where it came from. Maybe it's yours.

I remember these from my youth, but don't think I ever had one. There must have been zillions made. My first camera was a Kodak Retinette that I bought at the Navy Exchange at the Navy base in Morocco (1957). Got lots of good use from that one.
