This Kodak 2a box Brownie was one of the first cameras made in Kodak's new at the time plant at the north end of the city which would continue to manufacture all Canadian Kodak cameras until it's closure in 2006. This camera was made between 1920 - 1924 and can be dated by the lack of front lens and the general styling of the front face and features.

Nearly a hundred years old and still works like new, this camera is a real piece of history. In very good condition.

We do our best to thoroughly test and describe the condition of every item we sell.
Returns will be handled on a case by case basis, and partial refunds will not be given under any circumstances.

Returns must be shipped back at customer's expense and original purchase and shipping will be refunded after a case is opened with Canada Post.
