Need mirrors for no. 2 cartridge hawk-eye : LUSENET : Brownie Cameras : One Thread

I have a No. 2 Cartridge Hawk-Eye ( pat. 1914) with both mirrors missing. I'd like to use the camera. Anyone have any ideas on getting or making new mirrors.

Why is called a "Cartridge"?

re: mirrors and why cartridge?

Hi Warner,

Are you talking about the mirrors for the finder?

"Cartridge" is an early name for paper-backed rollfilms because they look similar to a shot-gun cartridge and they are easy to "load". This is the explanation from Brian Coe's book.
