Argus Flash Attachment
This is an Argus Flash attachment/handle. It uses 2 "C" type batteries that load into the screw-on cap - labeled Argus - on the bottom of the hand grip. I do not know what type of flash bulb it takes but it seems that it can use 2 different types due to an adapter, labeled Tarwood, that fits into the dual prong adapter of the flash unit. There is no flash button, but the reflector apparently can be adjusted for height or removed. There are two prongs that attach it to the camera on the side of the handle. This item is 9 1/2" (24.1 cm) tall, the handle is 1 1/4" (3.2 cm) in diameter and the flash dome is 6" (15.2 cm) in diameter, and the
unit weighs 4.7 oz (132 gr). I can only assume that with the proper pieces this unit might still be functional.
