Memories

I was at dad's for dinner AND I had a 5pm meeting!! Which luckily was one of those phone conference ones so I left at normal time and did the meeting at Dads.

I was sat up in "my room" ;) and noticed that in the open area of the bed side cabinet was a camera.... how it  got there I'll never know (Dad been clearing up) but it was my first ever camera.......!!

The camera still has a film in it!! I think that might be a bit past its sell by date!

It's a shutter priority range finder with a 40mm f1.7 lens.

It's an attractive looking camera and you can see it here

Next time I'm over dad's I might have to snaffle it and put a roll of film through it.

STOP PRESS MY DAD HAS FOUND THE BOX, MANUAL AND FLASH

What a wonderful surprise and a brilliant find :)

I remember giving my first camera a Kodak Retinette 1A (plus exposure meter!!) in part exchange when I bought a Pentax ME Super. Have regretted it ever since as I only got peanuts for it!!

Maybe there is still something on the film. Might be worth checking out. Although I expect you already have. What a wonderful find.
