now, metro retro is curiosities.
brian and i walked up the gangplank of our maiden voyage to curiosities last saturday. at some point in the 30 minutes that ensued, i decided that i needed a kodak brownie (because there was a slew of vintage/antique cameras strewn before me).
i've toodled about on ebay for a bit and just found a bakelite version of one that was currently going for $0.95 with one bid. i felt sorry for the little camera and its seller and decided to pad the bidding. but only to $3.00.
i might soon be the accidental owner of a kodak brownie of dubious mechanical status. stay tuned for "artistic" family photos...
