    Selection of old/vintage camera's

    scored a selection of old/vintage camera's at an antique auction today and thought i'd share.
    I'm getting married next year and the wedding theme is vintage travel, so we've been looking for "box cameras" for a little while now as part of the table decorations. There were three in this mixed box, however i'm pleasantly surprised with some of the others which we picked up!
    Some in working order, some not.

    Here's a list of what we scored! (the first three were the ones we wanted, the rest a bonus!)
    -Kodak Six-20 Brownie Model E (1947-53)
    -Kodak Six-20 Brownie Model D (1953-57)
    -Kodak Brownie Flash II (1958-63)
    -Kodak Retinette IA Type 035 w. Vero (Feb-Oct 1959)
    -Kodak Instamatic 56x (1972-77)
    -Minolta XD7 (1977-unknown?)

    and my favourite score of the day which we only worked out what it was when we got home
    -pocket Kodak No.1 series II (1922-31)

    I'm actually looking forward to trying to find some film for both the instamatic and the XD7 and see if they actually work or not! (any suggestions on where to find film and get it developed would be greatly appreciated)

    I've attached a few photos of ones that we got (excuse the photos as they were taken on my iPhone).

    Great finds!

    Just cock the shutters and play with them first to get the springs to work properly before you put film into them.

    Have fun!
