I was at my Dad's the other day and he pulled out an old camera that had been sitting in the cupboard for over 40 years! It's a Voigtlander Bessa 1 6x9cm folder with a "Vaskar" 105/4.5 lens. The viewfinder is very cloudy (almost opaque) but everything else seems to work fine, and the lens is crystal clear.

When I get a moment or two I'll load it up, and post the results here.
