Kodak Portrait Brownie No 2


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.
