Canadian Kodak No.2 Cartridge Hawk-Eye – Model B 1913-1930.

Description - An inexpensive camera with a cardboard body covered with black leatherette with a real leather strap. The Hawk-eye No. 2 has two prism view finders, one on the top and the other on the right side of the camera for taking portrait and landscape photos. The shutter is a simple ‘guillotine’ type with just one speed and two apertures allowing for timed exposures operated by the pull-up tab on the top of the box. Film: KODAK 120. Shutter: Single speed rotary. Fixed Focus.

History - The Hawk-eye cameras were originally made by the Boston Camera Company who were taken over by Blair Camera Company in 1890; and subsequently taken over by Eastman Kodak in 1899 when presumably the Hawk-Eye Model A would have been produced. Model B was manufactured from 1913 until at least 1930, being made in England from 1927 to 1930. The Model shown here was manufactured in Toronto, Canada by Canadian Kodak.

Eastman Kodak Portrait Brownie no 2 - 1929-1935.

The No.2 Portrait Brownie was the first camera to be manufactured at the Harrow factory in England. This box camera has a high quality and well finished metal body with unique angled edges and bright line borders giving it style and class. As well as two well-designed viewfinders, on the top and one on the side e.g. for portrait and landscape photos the camera also has a pull-out tab that moves another lens into position specifically designed, and very effective, for taking close-up portraits. The variation to this model was in colour from the traditional dark colours such as black and brown to more elaborate colours including red and green.
