Description

The No 2 Stereo Brownie is a neat stereo camera in the shape of the Brownie folding cameras. Twin maroon bellows (the left is slightly lighter in colour than the right) and wooden lens standard. The shutter type means that this is an early model according to Coe [4] (Automatic only fitted in 1905), although the serial (2718) is more than half way through the total production numbers of 4000 or so. The camera is in very good condition, with only slight wear showing on the strap.

Notes

The No 2 Stero Brownie camera is hard to find outside the US, and is not that common there either. This example was bought from a seller in the US.
