Kodak Boy Scout

This is the Kodak Boy Scout. I picked up this camera at a camera show near Washington, DC a few months ago and while I have not yet run film through it, I wanted to post it on the website as it’s a neat design. While not as rare or coveted as the Bantam Special, also by Walter Teague, it’s eye catching.

This particular camera is in excellent shape, though it appears to have had the bellows replaced as they are not the original color.

  1. This is basically a Kodak Petite in Boy Scout trim. I have a couple of the Petites, mainly because one of them was my very first camera. It had been my Dad’s very first camera before that. 🙂
    Nice art deco design in any form!
