This is a great example of the Beacon II camera from Whitehouse Products.
Whitehouse was based in Brooklyn, NY, and this camera dates from the 1950s.
This model was produced between 1947 - 1955, but I believe this is a later model due to the absence of a "B" Setting and the body feels like plastic rather than Bakelite.
Please note that this may be Bakelite, but it feels lighter to me.
It is in wonderful condition and works well.
*Takes 127 Film
*Collapsible Lens Panel
*Leather Carry Case Indluded (Strap is missing)
*No aperture or lens settings
I have not tested this camera with film, but all parts appear to work as they should.
This would be a wonderful part of any collection and would look fantastic on display!
