Ansco  - CRAFTSMAN c1950

Sold as a "do it yourself camera kit." The camera is wood and cardboard with a nailed - on aluminum face. This was the kind of gift you'd give your nerdy cousin.

The craftsmanship is evident here. Nicely applied vinyl and all the parts are well fitted.

  The red shutter button is very classy. Six by nine images on 120 film.

Old things are disappearing at an alarming rate and I'm determined to capture what I can.

Land values are high and owners can't afford the taxes. Developers buy the land and put up houses.

People don't care, they're in a hurry.

People want to live in "the country" but they want to bring the city with them.

"Take paradise, put up a parking lot."
