- I have never taken any picture with this camera, I recently bought it in a antic shop. But since I am collecting old cameras, I had to have it.
Everything are functioning on the camera, but it is difficult to get a
120 film today. I have a collection of 31 cameras from different
periods, from 1915 and up.

- My mum used this type of camera when I was little, I still have the tiny black and white photos that she took when we were on holiday, seeing it brings back very happy memories.
