Fun Facts:
The Brownie Bull's-Eye was a Bakelite Box camera designed by Arthur H. Crapsey, who also designed the highly successful Kodak Brownie Star series along with other cameras for Kodak. The body featured an eye-level viewfinder and a large shutter-release button on the front vertical edge, in front of the winding knob. Learn more about Arthur H. Crapsey here.
