The Brownie

While I no longer have this camera, I think it was a Kodak Brownie Flashmite or a Kodak Brownie Starmite. It was a very simple, point and shoot camera with a built in flash that used AG1 flashbulbs. It took 127 roll film. As far I remember I only shot black and white film with this camera. After shooting a roll, the film was dropped off at the base exchange at Pearl Harbor for developing and printing. In the examples below, the prints came back in a square format with a deckled edge.
