Edit[edit]

I've removed :"It was the first mas produced camera to use rolls of photographic film, meaning that the photographer did not have to chage the photographic plate after each photo. In the early years, users of brownies would mail the camera back to the Kodak factory when the film roll was completed, and then Kodak would mail back the developed photographs together with the camera loaded with a fresh roll of film."

There is some confusion between the Kodak N°1 and the Brownie N°1. Since the first, the Brownies use rollfilm and are loaded by the user.

Clean up[edit]

Licensing[edit]

What's the liscencing for the bert hardy photo? If it's available it should be on this page.

Frank Brown[edit]

I'm removing the reference to Frank Brown "The camera was named after Frank Brownell, its inventor who was a subcontractor of Eastman Kodak, and then ascribed to Palmer Cox's popular cartoon characters." According to Kodiac's website they are name after Palmer Cox, there's not mention of this Frank Brownell, could someone point me in the direction of a source for it? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 99.246.211.130 (talk) 01:06, 6 February 2008 (UTC)
