    Many 35mm stereo (3-D) cameras such as the Realist shoot square frames (though they would typically have been mounted into stereo slides). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stereo_Realist

    I am a proud owner of a Tenax II which uses one lever to wind and one to focus. Small and well made but would trade for a IIIc

    I once owned a Yashica EZ-matic that also took 126 film and produced square slides. I bought it in the mid 60's, probably around 1966.

    Postscript.
    My mother has identified the camera from a photograph downloaded from Google. It was indeed an Agfa Rapid. Mystery solved.

    Thanks for your help.

    Agfa Rapid cameras were introduced as a immediate consequence to the introduction of the Kodak Instamatic system in 1963. So those photographs cannot be made in the mid-50's.
    And I don't know any earlier Agfa camera that exposed 24x24mm images on 35mm film.

    Early Nikons and Minoltas are 24x34 (32?)
    Not square, but less rectangular
