Week 317 - Kodak No.0 Brownie Model A
This is one of the very simple wood and cardboard cameras made in large numbers by Kodak, this particular model was introduced in 1914 and discontinued in 1935. It uses 127 film, which was introduced in 1912, and discontinued in 2012, but there are now a couple of manufacturers who are once again selling the format.
I found this one in a charity shop for £3, the cloth hinge is hanging off, but with the aid of a couple of elastic bands, the camera can be held together.
