Designed and marketed for children, the Brownie was named after the characters created by Palmer Cox, a famous children's author. They were as well known in the 1880's as Mickey is today. Little did they know at Kodak that the Brownie camera would be so eagerly sought after? This very popular Brownie series has a molded brown and tan plastic body with an optical direct vision finder. The camera was produced between 1953 and 1957, uses 127 size film and originally sold for $5.00. There is no way of knowing of how many Kodak made but safe to say in the millions. The camera had a Kodet lens from 1953 to 1955 and a Dakon plastic lens from 1955 to 1962. This camera like many others was designed by Arthur H. Crapsey. The non-flash Brownie Holiday camera is the retail version of the Brownie Bullet, which was a promotional camera. Additionally the same model series was named the Camara Brownie Chiquita, Brownie Chiquita Camera and Camara Brownie Chiquita Flash which were manufactured for the Brazilian market. Much of this info was obtained from the Brownie camera page.
