Ah, the Brownie Hawkeye camera - made in America with that "sturdy molded body; handsome modern styling." Most families in my generation had one. I promised my mom I would keep the camera, flash attachment, and yes, even the box. I'm glad I did.
The camera actually took some pretty nice photos and has definitely left us with sweet, happy memories.
This is my older brother, Cowboy Bob.
Is that a real TV? I swear I don't remember that.
The infamous basement birthday party. That's me, the short blondie next to Cowboy Bob. The quality of this photo isn't that great, but I don't think it was the fault of the camera.
You'd be smiling, too, if your parents let you eat all that candy at one sitting. I think the bottle of beer on the table had something to do with it.
This is me with my brother now. I think the Brownie took funnier pictures.
