The camera on the left was Tony’s parents’ camera, the one on the right was my parents’.
The camera on the left was Tony’s childhood camera; the one on the right, the Bullet, was mine…today is a good day to date myself.
This is the infamous Argus “Brick,” first introduced in 1939 but produced until the ’60s. I got this one at my neighbor’s yard sale years ago. I think it is probably from the ’40s, from what I’ve read on how to date them. Apparently it’s made from Bakelite.
It came complete with dust to make it more authentic…(so I kept it that way)…
…and a flash…and a leather case.
This CP 301 was made in the ’60s by Konica and sold by Montgomery Ward. It has a pretty Seiko lens.
That is my unintentional vintage camera collection. There are also several newer film and digital ones that don’t quite qualify as vintage yet (although I guess any film camera would, technically).
Solid camera, solid cat.
Do you have some vintage cameras? Any really old ones, maybe 1800s? If you do, I’d like to see a link.
