In the 1950s, the Herbert George Company (Imperial Camera Co. in 1961) of Chicago, Illinois produced an official Girl Scout camera (light green and dark brown). Many Boy Scout cameras were produced throughout the mid-1900s, but few models were made for the female scouts. This easy-use 620 box style camera used an eye-level viewfinder and featured the Girl Scout logo on its faceplate. The camera produced 2¼×2¼ exposures on type No. 620 film rolls. It was the typical Herbert George box camera design, with an optical viewfinder on top. A big bulb flash was attachable on the camera top using the two plug-in flash sockets on either side of the viewfinder. The camera has a fixed-focus (approximately 24mm) lens that’s locked in at an aperture of f/11. The shutter is fixed at 1/60 seconds. This camera was also released as the Official Cub Scout Camera, Official Girl Scout Camera for Brownie Scouts (with red winder knob plus shutter button top), Herco Imperial (620 Snap Shot), Savoy Mark II (in light green plastic only) and the Roy Rogers and Trigger (620 Snap Shot Camera). The Herbert George Co. rarely missed a chance to appeal to a new market and by changing the faceplate, knob color, or body color they achieve just that. All aforementioned cameras were the same aside from the color variations and interchangeable faceplates.
