|Whitehouse Products Inc. was a camera manufacturer based in Brooklyn, New York, USA. It made simple Bakelite (and later other plastic) snapshot models, branded Beacon. Early Beacon models had collapsible lens panels; collapsing the panel disabled the shutter. Early models featured a B shutter setting, which was removed on later examples. The Beacon II and Two-Twenty-Five were fitted for mounting a flashgun.The later Reflex model was almost identical to the Ansco Cadet Reflex. The WH 127-A model was also sold by Argus as the Argus 127.
Cameras[edit | edit source]
The Beacon, Beacon II & Two-Twenty-Five cameras were usually black, but were available in various different colours.
