A little of yester-year

Seen in the museum at Silverton; many of us will remember the Kodak Box Brownies perhaps as being our very first camera.

Photos taken through glass cabinet






Notation reads: Wedding present, 1891, for parents of Mrs A. Hocking, Broken Hill

Carole, these are wonderful!
I collect vintage cameras, and actually have a couple of the Brownie Box cameras. They are just beautiful cameras.

I want a box Brownie camera, that's what my grandmother used to take pictures of us when we were kids.... I also want a Kodak S-10 which was my very first camera in the late 60's or early 70's. Neat stuff.

A neat collection of old cameras. I have an old movie camera similar to the Bell and Howell camera. I want an old Box Camera to go with it.
The stained glass is beautiful.

Love those old cameras! I've never seen one in person, but I've read a lot about them. Beautiful stained glass window, too!

My parents had an old Box Brownie camera they used to take photos of us when we were children with it...always seemed to take them forever to take the shot though, my younger brother would always get impatient and start scowling before the shot was taken, LOL!
