A Delmonta twin-lens reflex.. made in either China or Japan.. can't remember which now.. but it was a copy of the Rollei twin-lens which I simply had no way of buying then because I simply had no money for one.  Did manage to get a real Rollei second-hand about three years later from a Dealer friend who was upgrading.. and I never looked back in having top-names thereafter..the Rollei SINGLE lens of which I had about 3 versions in later years, I still regard probably with as much respect as even the Leicas which came on the scene eventually and leading later to 6x6 Hass with which I had very many happy years until digital finally came into the picture.
A lot of happy years along the way from about 1950 or so...
