Tuesday Treasures



It seems appropriate to share some photos of old cameras from the museum.  The old cameras look like fine pieces of equipment!


The room, which you could only view from the doorway, was set up to replicate a photographer's portrait studio from yesteryear.


 I would have enjoyed acting the part with my head under the cloth, ready to snap a picture with that old camera on the tripod.


Thanks for visiting and please see more Treasures at Tom's link up HERE


Have a great day!

  2. Neat to see the old cameras! I'm glad photography has advanced to the point where just about anyone can use a camera anywhere, and see the photos a moment after taking them! Photography has come a long way, and it's nice to see where it all started!

  6. The camera in front (first photo) looks like Voigtländer Bessa II, a real treasure and I think a wonderful museum.
