Sears No. 1 Box Camera c1955

Another potential weapon from the 1950's. I'm fond of cameras that are assembled with big screws. Screws that require screwdrivers from my garage, not my optician. This block of bakelite has double exposure prevention and a "T" setting. The embossed pattern on the bakelite is an attempt to hide its pedestrian lineage. It makes 6x6 images on 120 film.

Sears and Roebuck sold everything in the 1950's and 1960's. I think you could get heart surgery there at one time, but I may be wrong.

I placed the camera on an old table and used the "Time" setting for this shot.

Never shoot directly into the sun, right ?
