Kodak. 125 years old


It is apparently Kodak’s 125th anniversary. Their Box Brownie of the turn of the 19th/20th century made photography accessible for many & remained in production in various forms well into the 20th century.

This one is mine, from the late 1950s, a Kodak Brownie Flash 3. Bought from a junk shop some 30 years ago for £2, it came with box & manual but no carrying case. It was also loaded with B&W film with only 1 frame exposed. I used the rest of the film & the reasonable results are in a box…. “somewhere”.

Quite well equipped for a simple camera. Dual viewfinder for portrait & landscape modes, filters for close up & summer skies, flash connectivity & tripod mount together with timed exposure capability & shutter lock. It is currently loaded with 620 colour film & I really should put it to some use..one day.
