Kodak Folding Brownie
This camera is one of my longer term restoration projects. It’s currently unusable. It’s totally light tight but the optics are all cloudy. It’s worth next to nothing, I could probably pick one up from ebay for about a tenner but that’s not the point.
I’d love to get it restored and back into service because it once belonged to my Grampy. The older I get, the more I wish he’d been around long enough for me to really appreciate him. By all accounts he was a hoarder, a tinkerer and a “builder of things” – all traits that I can very much relate to.
I have a handful of negatives that he shot with it, and I’d like to revisit the same locations and take the same shots – with the same camera – 50+ years on. It feels like the right thing to do.
