Hold on to your past…
Because it is your past that has moulded your present,
Your past is what has brought you to the here and now,
Your past has made you the person you are today…
Hold on to your past…
Because it is your past that contains all your memories,
It is your past that holds all your history.
Hold on and don’t let go…

    Wow Keith what a beautiful collection. Are they still working?
    Hope you will put this in the group, Table Top.

  • Hey.. thanks very much Tracy.. They are all still working although you can’t get film for most of them anymore… The one in the middle actually takes 120 roll film that is still readily available and I have ran a roll through it with interesting results.. I just thought it was cool using a 97 year old camera to take photos…

  • Thanks Michael… I have 14 of these folding beauties along with a few TLRs, some SLRs, a dozen or so box Brownies and a few other random styles… There is no such thing as too many…

    Love this shot Keith like how you arranged them as well.

  • Thanks mate… the centre one actually takes 120 roll film and I have ran a roll through it with interesting results. It was just cool taking photos with a camera almost 100 years old…
