Thanks so much for taking your time to read this, just as a little background- I am an artist but have no photography experience, I picked this camera and its bits and bobs up on my travels in Normandy this year. I was frankly uncertain what I was going to do with it but I was sure I could give it more love and attention than it was getting in the junk shop I found it in.
Having done a bit of online research I believe it to be a http://www.collection-appareils.fr/x/html/appareil-20782-Photo-Hall_Paris%20Touriste%20n%C2%B02bis.html but I can't be entirely certain. The other flummoxing thing about this camera was that it wasn't attached to the hinged board you would expect it to rest on but the other contraption which I have uploaded, I have many more pictures so do let me know if it would be helpful to upload it. Does anybody know what the lens contraption thing is?
Just a little bit more detail about the camera;
-It appears to be in original condition but is missing its lens and the hinged back door that a plate would sit on
-The mechanism on the bit at the bottom (I have no idea what it is called!) is smooth
-I also have an array of film and bits and bobs that came with it including a negative on a glass plate
Can I give anybody more details that would help to identify it? Would the camera have intrinsic value to someone? And does anybody know someone in London that might be able to help me?
