    bman, no doubt you'll look totally retro taking snaps with that camera.
    As a kid in the 50s, I had a Browie; actually everyone did. It was the most popular camera of the day.
    Thanks for the memories.

    Hi Gman.
    I love the old cameras. I wasn't much of a photographer until i got into the older ones. They are just special to me i guess.

Collecting Ansco Camera's and Kodak , the Ansco Camera Co. was right down the road from Me in the 1930-50's until it was sold to the Government. The lenses were made in Germany but the cameras were made in a factory where Binghamton University now stands.If Ya wanna Wikipedia it Ansco Camera's ... Garry ...
