    What Kodak Brownie model is this exactly?

    And where can I find some info on it to try and see if it works? I suspect it may not, however I can't even figure out how to open it!

    It's a Brownie Hawkeye and uses 127 film. You open it by lifting on the two tabs on the top and the back comes off. Here is a link to info about this camera...

    No it uses 620 film. To open rotate the metal piece on top under the handle. I was produced from approximately 1950 to 1960 and took a flash unit on the left side.

    Don't remember the exact name, however, it was the first camera I ever used (family camera) and it took 620 6x6 photos.

    When you open, open carefully : old bakelite may be easily broken...

    Name is Brownie Flash.

    brian d,

    Note the Kodak Brownie Hawkeye Flash uses flashbulbs too just like your Speed Graphic!
