Argus Camera model C2 "The Brick", 1938

This Argus camera was produced in USA from 1938 to 1942 by the International Research Corp., attributed to designer Gustav Fassin. Made with a Bakelite body, metal front and back with black fake leather panels and chromed buttons and trims. The nickname "the brick" refers not only to its shape but to its odd weight. Almost 850 grams for a 13 x 6,5 x 4,5 cm camera.
