I tracked it's numbers to 1938, thus this baby goes back a few years. It doesn't have the fancy lens either, just the Tessar. This has to be the ugliest camera I've ever seen. I've described it as looking as if it sat on the bottom of the ocean for a couple years. It's counter doesn't work (until your at the last frame), so I cut a window into the back to locate the film. Oh well, between the black tape and the little red window, it does work.

Frame #1: "Boulder Creek" Somewhere along the road through Baxter State park in Maine. Stopped down to about f/11 or f/16. Tripod (in the water). Fuji Reala 100.

Frame #2: "First Sunset" Cadillac Mountain (which supposedly has the first sunrise for the nation, I'm assuming it has the first sunset also). How's that for logic? f/11. Tripod. Fuji Reala 100.

Edit: At 65, I believe this camera qualifies for Social Security!
