The Baby Brownie Special was introduced in 1939 and discontinued in 1954. The camera has a molded plastic body with a direct vision optical finder. The models for export had a button allowing brief time exposures. This camera was sold as an upgrade from the Baby Brownie. It also used the 127 roll film producing a 1 5/8 x 2 ½ inch negative. For only $0.25 more than Baby Brownie price of $1.00, one could have a direct optical view finder and an easy-to-use shutter release. Think of it...$1.25 for a workhorse camera like the Baby Brownie Special, even in the 1940's and 1950's, is amazing! No record of how many were produced here in the US but it had to be in the hundreds of thousands. The camera has a Meniscus lens and a rotary shutter.
