Visited friends over the weekend and got to browze through Ian's collection of old wares. Everything from spanners to an old chair. In an OLD brief case I discovered a range of photographic gear.
Apart from a collection of Mamyia 2 1/4 sq filters camera backs bellows units etc and a Yashika SLR with a couple of lenses in cases there was a very old Pinhole camera.
My friend is going to attempt a renovation. I wished him the best of luck.
Incidently, the block of wood the camera is sitting on is a piece of a pylon from the Port Melbourne pier. Full of wood worm (note the holes)
