Kodak Brownie 2 model F
This camera I found in a shop in London and was the first Box Brownie, or first old camera that I've ever bought. As soon as I got home, I bought a film for it and did some tests. Unfortunately I did not know then that there was an auxilary portrait lens attached so the pictures were extremely out of focus. Well, the results of this test can be admired here.
