Houghton Ful-Vue

Traduction de Sylvain Halgand

The 2nd of June 1953, Elizabeth Alexandra Mary Windsor is crowned Queen of the United Kingdom  and some others independent countries.
The same year, to celebrate this coronation, the Barnet Ensign Ltd company launches on the market three coloured variations of the already very popular Ensign Ful Vue . In red, blue and white.
These patriotic and celebrating cameras coloured as the Union Jack were called by the English  Ful Vue « A la mode ».
To be clear, this camera has nothing to do with the squared box marketed in 1939 but is the second design in stage of the post-war camera  the revolutionary design of which was inspired by the concept of the American Harold Van Doren in his book « Streamlining in Industrial Design » of 1940.
Apart from the colour, this camera is technically similar to the one shown here.
