Sharing: Vintage Cameras

As I have mentioned, most of my belongings are still in storage in another state. I don't have many "collections" - a lot of stuff, but not necessarily "collected", but with my love of vintage, and my love of photography . . . well, vintage cameras were a "no brainer"!

Here are a few of my favorites . . . I have picked them up on Etsy, eBay, thrift stores, local tag sales, and antique stores.

Kodak Tourist Camera, 1948


This is my favorite "style" of camera - it looks so foreign compared to modern cameras.
Vintage Argus Camera with original Rohlik leather case, 1940's
1938 Argus A camera


1957 Brownie Bullet
This little camera (which currently resides in my living room) is a traditional Brownie. I have many Brownies, but I love these little box cameras!


1950's Sears & Roebuck Tower camera, with flash


I love this 1940 Kodak Brownie Special six-16


1949 Kodak Duaflex II


1939 Agfa PB-20 Readyset


Imperial Reflex Duo Lens,  1950's


Beacon II - approx 1950


1961 Brownie Super 37 camera, this is the first camera in my "vintage" collection that I remember being used in my childhood. On the left (in the photo), is a door that opens for a flash bulb.


1946 Brownie Target six-20

I love being able to incorporate these cameras into my design . . . in fact, I have them in nearly every room of the house!

What do you collect?
