History of the brand Kodak New window

Traduction de Sylvain Halgand.

The model in photograph is the american one (1934-1941) intended for export.
It is recognized by the presence of the button located above the lens. It is intended to choose between the snapshot and the exposure (called bulb exposure). Only the models manufactured for export between 1936 and 1939 have this button.
The camera was also manufactured in the United Kingdom between 1948 and 1952. The button appears there only in 1951.

The body is made of bakelite.

This camera was worth 36 francs in 1940 (Photo Plait catalogs).
