The Kodak Brownie Flash II Camera, Australian Model Camera features a leatherette covering with a horizontally striped front panel. It has the two brilliant finders found on many box Brownies in addition to the somewhat uncommon pin and screw flash contacts allowing for many different Kodak flash units to be used. It's rounded off with a built in slidable close-up lens.

Fun Facts:
This attractive and functional metal body Brownie Camera is made by Kodak Australasia Ply Ltd., Melbourne, Australia. It is identical to the UK-made Flash II model and was initially assembled from imported parts.The Brownie Flash Series Cameras are among the more handsome and functional Kodak box cameras. When you hold it you can feel the added quality that many box cameras lack. The additional close-up lens make this abit more than a point and shoot box camera. If you find one, get it and use it and I think you'll be pleasantly surprised with the results! The Australian-made Flash II was the last of the Kodak "box" cameras.
