It's in pretty rough shape, I've been carting it around for over 40 years myself, and all of that folding & unfolding has really taken a toll on the canvas bellows! But I love it! It was my Dad's camera from his high school and college years in the 1930s. I have a number of photos taken by my Dad of his family and friends during this time, so I have to assume they were taken with this camera.

    Nice to see a little history to go with an old camera, I'm headed to your blog.

    OK, I'm back.
    Showing the camera with old pictures that it took is the best.

    Good idea, I think I'll steal it. :)
