Kodak Brownie 127 cameras - made between 1952 and 1963 - were used by millions of families to record outings and picnics on sunny days. The Brownie 127 is a simple camera with a fixed shutter speed, focus and depth of field, and no flash or tripod attachment. The film is loaded in a darkened room and wound on by hand.
