Fun Facts:
The Boy Scout Brownie camera was copied from the No. 2 Brownie line of cameras. The first No. 2 Brownie, manufactured in 1901, introduced 120 roll film. Before digital, this was the roll-film size of choice for professional medium format photographers. 120 size film is the longest continuously available film. As of this writing it has been available for 110 years!

There is also a Six-20 Boy Scout Brownie manufactured from 1933-1934.
