I had no idea there are this many different brownie cameras! Oh YES, have the film developed!! What fun.

What a fabulous collection. Before the renovation, my local Swiss Chalet had several vintage Brownies on display as part of the rustic decor. Wonder what they did with them. By all means use the film. Those old films last a lifetime. Mind you, you won't know if they've already been exposed and, if so, you could have some interesting double images from your own point and shoot sessions.

Oh these are just the absolute coolest! (Imagine paying $2.60 for a camera). Unfortunately I'm old enough now to wish that I'd saved my Brownie from childhood. Why not get the film developed Nancy? It could be something interesting.
