Lights! Camera! Say Cheese!

Early 1900s 5x7 Glass Plate Bellows Camera
Vintage cameras are really a lot of fun. Old fashioned film and camera photography is a lost skill nowadays. Film and developing and printing resources can still be found. However, most vintage cameras lead the life of decorative accessories in offices and dens, residing on bookshelves, in display cases and collection cabinets. They do make a wonderful statement.
Old photographs are great for decorating and for mixed-media artwor. We have lots of them.
We have recently acquired a large collection of cameras and photography accessories ... from old Brownies to more contemporary 35mm SLR cameras and even a couple of miniature or spy cameras. For the most part these cameras appear to be functional ... they are mechanically sound and clean, but we have not actually taken photographs with them. The accessories range from darkroom gadgets to lenses and filters to flashbulb attachments. Fun stuff.

You have got to see this stuff. Come on in!

Some old electrical meters, a Kodak Brownie Box Camera and an Argus Camera. In back is a 35mm SLR and on the right a wind-up movie camera.
