Kodak Brownie Hawkeye

One of the first cameras I owned and used as a child in the 60’s. The Kodak Brownie Hawkeye is a Bakelite box camera that takes 6x6cm images on620 film, made in the USA and France by Kodak, between 1949-1961. There were also examples labelled “Brownie Fiesta” and “Brownie Flash”. The original design did not have a flash facility , but the Flash model was added in 1950 and called the Brownie Flash in France and the Kodak Brownie Hawkeye Flash in the USA. Earlier models of the camera have a metal film advance knob; later models have a knurled plastic knob.
