Default 1937-1939 camera

Here are some photos taken with my older Rollieflex camera made around 1938 based on its serial number and information taken from the Rollieflex camera club web site.
the fotos are of a sand sculpturing event at Revere breach in revere ,Ma. in this year
So I hope you enjoy and remember those older camera's can still produce some good photos. Enjoy

Nice captures Seawolf, I actually looked at the 1953 version of your camera last evening.

Unfortunately the taking lens showed severe deterioation of the coatings and the shutter needs work and the fellow selling it wouldn't budge from a ridiculous price he was asking for the particular make and model.

Ahh yess... the proofing process.

I love digi and the proofing process is much the same, but I really miss pouring over a contact sheet of 2 1/4" negs.
