Traduction de Sylvain Halgand

During the 50s, Herbert George Co. manufactured a series of cameras intended for the American scouts. The movement was then in full expansion, baby-boom obliges. These cameras are of the 620 for the majority. They carry the official colors of the scouts. This one is black, but the frontal inscriptions are green dark and is intended for Girl Scout. It is made made of plastic, has only one speed and probably a lens meniscus.
