1965 Ford Galaxie 500
Car guys at Denver’s annual Cinco de Mayo festival in Civic Center, May 5, 2012.
Mark Rhoads lost his job as a journeyman stagehand when his eyesight degraded so much he couldn’t work. While he waits through the months-long process to get disability payments, he’s making ends meet by playing his hard-worn Sigma guitar on Denver’s 16th Street Mall. Taken with my Konica Auto S2 rangefinder camera, which I wrote about this weekend.

In 1938, the Baby Brownie Special was introduced as an upgrade to the original Baby Brownie. Improvements included a side-mounted (more accessible) bakelite button shutter release, and a top-mounted telescopic optical viewfinder. This little guy was in production until 1954, and given its quality in comparison to other toy cameras I’ve tested, it’s no surprise.
This week on Putting a Roll Through: Eight images from my most recent camera acquisition, the Kodak Baby Brownie Special.
Another of my Bakelite Beauties, the Kodak Baby Brownie Special (photos and details on mine) is an upgrade from the standard Baby Brownie.
The Mar-Crest toy camera
Love this little bakelite beauty from a local antique mall, though she’s more of a looker than a shooter. I wrote all about it and posted more example photos on my site.
This little folding camera c. 1934-1940 is the latest in my series on the cameras in my personal collection. Also included is an explanation on why the Mar-Crest toy camera wasn’t next as promised.
