Biographical / Historical

The Kodak Brownie Reflex Synchro model was manufactured from Sept 1941-May 1952 in the US and from 1946 to May 1960 in the UK; some were also made in Candada. Thus overall the model had a 20 year production run. The synchro model had a two-pin flash connector below the taking lens, and had the shutter selector inverted. The design was patented in 1940 by designer Henry O. Drotning as US Patent D119931.
