The Baby Brownie Special camera has a moulded plastic body with a direct
vision optical finder. The models for export had a button allowing brief time
I suspect that this camera was sold as an upgrade from the Baby Brownie. For only $0.25 more than Baby Brownie price of $1.00, one could have a direct optical view finder and an easy-to-use shutter release. Think of it...$1.25 for a workhorse camera like the Baby Brownie Special, even in the 1940's and 1950's, is amazing!
