    How COOL is that, Val???

    God, I remember having a camera similar to this one and threading the film around the loop inside.

    And I also remember having a Kodak Swinger Polaroid camera – HA!

    FAB photo, girl!

      ron, i would like to have a small collection of old cameras just to look at, but do i really need them? no. i want them though. maybe i’ll limit myself to 3 and put them on a shelf or hang them from a wall.

      wow, that is cool cheryl. i would like to start a collection, but i hate clutter and i’m probably just being swept up in the moment. maybe i will purchase two retro cammys and that’s it.

      hello madge and welcome tomy blog. i checked ebay a few minutes ago, there are several for sell, even saw one with film, which is helpful. hope you get one.

  2. That’s fantastic! I had an old Brownie and an old Leica. I sold them, foolishly, in a garage sale before finding out that they were worth some money. Especially the Leica. I hate myself now.

  3. OK…. because I am stupid and blog about that very thing, I am going to openly admit something. I need glasses but haven’t gotten around to getting checked. I looked at your photo and saw, “Holiday Flask.” Puzzled, I noticed the “screw top” on top… and (I can’t believe I am admitting this) actually thought (FOR A MOMENT!) it was a flask! LOLOLOL!

  4. I had one of these as a kid and played with it until…I broke it. It was outdated even then, but I did re-purpose it as a fort for my plastic soldiers.

Speak on it!
