Official Girl Scout

When boy scouts were discovered as a market for cameras, several camera makers offered "Scout" models. Herbert George of Chicago discovered that there were girl scouts too. They responded by releasing an Official Girl Scout Camera, a box camera for 2¼×2¼ exposures on type No. 620 film rolls. This was merely a renamed Herco Imperial (or Savoy Mark II). It was the typical Herbert George box camera design, with a telescopic viewfinder on top. A big bulb flash was attachable on the camera top.
A later version of the Girl Scout camera was based on the Imperial Mark XII Flash.
