Fun Facts:
This was manufactured in London for the US market. It is a renamed Brownie 127 camera with the faceplate replaced.
It's interesting that this name and faceplate change happened. 263,000 Brownie 127 cameras were exported to the United States and Canada between May, 1953 and September, 1954. It makes me think that this camera was put back into production as a promotional or premium camera.

I've also included this video since the cameras are identical.
