The No.2 Portrait Brownie Camera, or Portrait Brownie No2 Camera, was the first camera to come out of the then new Kodak camera factory in Harrow, UK. This well-made metal body camera has unique angled edges to front panel with a bright line border which also surrounds the finder window. Two brilliant finders. The two brilliant finders helped with positioning the image. The main feature of this camera is the pull-out tab which moves another lens into place for close-up portraits...and it works very well!

1929-35: Grey, Claret, Brown, Red
