Coronet 4-4 , 127 roll film camera, c1957

The Coronet Camera Co. operated out of Birmingham and concentrated upon the mass market, they are probably best known for their coloured Coronet Midget range of cameras that have, inexplicably, become spectacularly collectable. Moulded thermosetting plastic, inexpensive and simple camera. To all intents and purposes, a box camera with a more interesting shape with direct viewing. Initially I tended to dislike these types of camera, but nowadays I've warmed to them. When I think of the countless millions of family moments this camera, and others like it, must have recorded - I think it's earned a place for all time in the museum of the "humble and unloved". A friend remembers having one new in 1958, and it is this fact which forms the basis of the date for this camera.
