Antique NO. 2A BROWNIE MODEL B Box Camera Pat. 1916! - (eBay item 290182808000 end time Nov-24-07 18:15:00 PST)
This camera is marked on the film cartridge, "No. 2A Brownie Camera Model B., U.S. Patents Feb. 1, 1916, Mar. 21, 1916." It's covered in black paper textured like leather and has two view finders for portrait and landscape photos.
Embossed on the camera back is "Use Film No. 116" and a metal tag says, "Made in U.S.A. by Eastman Kodak Company, Rochester, N.Y., U.S.A. 14408."
To disassemble, unhook the two latches and pull out the film advance crank. The shutter lens is gone and so is the carry strap. The shutter lever still works and on top are two sliding tabs to set Time and Diaphragm. The spool in the film cartridge is wooden.
