Provenance

Not sure where this 'wee' camera came from - just one of the many items that seem to have 'appeared' in the SMHC collection. The Box Brownie was certainly THE camera in the mountains and everywhere else for decades in the mid 1900's and we are delighted to have this nice little example in our collection.
