Week 80 - Kodak Brownie 127

These 127 formay Brownies were made by the tens of millions in the UK from c1950-1963, this is one of the second version, made from 1959-63.
To my mind it's a real design classic, made of Bakelite and with an exagerated, almost bloated curved shape, it is the most basic camera you could imagine, with no adjustments whatsoever. I've loaded it with a roll of expired Jessop brand B&W film, which I think is probably made by Efke in what was then Yugoslavia.
