1948 Kodak 35 Rangefinder with Kodak Anastar Special f/3.5 50mm in FLASH KODAMATIC SHUTTER. The 35 was the first 35mm camera built in the U.S. by Kodak. War was in the air in 1938 and Eastman Kodak wanted to get an American plant up and running before hostilities erupted. The original was not a rangefinder but instead had two fold-up composing windows on top. In around 1940, the improved 35 Rangefinder was released. This must have been a popular camera with enthusiasts both in the U.S. and in Europe. I have seen more than one photograph of a German officer, one posing with the Eiffel Tower in the frame, with this camera hanging around his neck. When I first saw those photos, I wasn't surprised, after all, Kodak was a German company. I was realy surprised to find that this was actually an American made camera that went eastward across the Atlantic. I wonder if that SS officer in one of those photos got any grief for owning a non-German camera. I hope so! There was a military version of this camera which didn't have the bright metal parts but instead was painted more camo.
All parts of this camera seem to work just fine except for the shutter. It has a slight operational lag. Someday soon, I'm going to look inside the shutter to see if anything screams out at me as the culprit. If the problem is just some hardened oil, I'll deal with it and see if it fixes the problem. If the problem turns out to be internal rust or a tired spring, I'll close it up and use it as shelf candy.
They just don’t build them like this anymore! Multiple living and sitting areas over both levels was a hall mark of pre-war multi gabled Queenslander architecture. 37 Kinmond Avenue boasts over 420m2 of internal space and is perfect for a young and growing family. VIP viewing tonight 5.45-6.30pm or this Saturday 11am. See you there! 🥂🍾
Une TRÈS rare Citroën 15/six, avant-guerre, de 1939 ! Un peu particulière car c'est un modèle dît "SPLENDILUX". Elle est équipée d'un "kit" comprenant ailes arrières et avant, calandre, capot et une malle de coffre assez surprenante. Cette réalisation, datant de 1948, est due à Henri Esclassan.
