Baldabox Box cameras are so cool and this one is no exception. The Baldabox was made by Balda in Dresden in 1930 and was a very basic leatherette covered metal box for use with 120 roll film. The resulting 6 x 9 centimeter pictures are really great to look at soft yet not too soft. I just like boxes...
