A basic, if slightly unusual camera, taking 12 square exposures, so only needing a single waistlevel viewfinder. Produced in two models, the earlier non-flash model on the left. The later model was also produced in France as the Brownie Flash and exported, presumably to Spanish-speaking countries, as the Brownie Fiesta, Flash Model. The 'Pin & Screw' contacts for the flashgun can be seen on the right-hand camera. The earlier model has a metal film wind knob, that on the later being plastic.
The version without flash was manufactured between 1949-51 and the flash version between 1950-61. Original list price for the non-flash version was $5.50 and for the flash version $7.
