My first ever camera model...in a museum...
2

I was emotional when I came across this in a museum in Yorkshire recently...this was my first ever camera, passed down to me by my Mother. Not this specific one of course, but this model. I still remember the smell of the Bakelite (the same material that phones were made of), the squidgy feel of the shutter button and the canvas bag it was supplied with. What memories. How far we have come ! The neck strap was made of string !
