This camera is the basic leatherette covered card case design. The case is removed for loading film by releasing two pivoted catches and pulling out winding key to expose the metal film carrier. It has two reflecting viewfinders, tripod sockets and a trigger guard. On the top front of the camera are slide-outs for a bulb(time) setting and f/holes.

None that I know of, which is surprising for a Brownie box camera in production for 17 years.

Fun Facts:
The No.2C Brownie used 130 film which produced a very large negative perfect for contact printing exceptionally large prints.
