Acquisitions: Brownie Camera

Today I went to a shop that sells vintage items as props to the film industry here in Vancouver. I hadn't been to the shop for a year, and I had forgotten how many wonderful things can be found there. They're selling to the film industry so many of the prices are a bit high, but some are quite reasonable.

I managed to find a Brownie box camera In working condition. From the bit of research I did, I found out that it's a  No.2A Brownie from between 1917 to 1920. I will look for some film to fit so I can try using the camera soon.

I also got a pair of gold plated spectacles. I think they're mid to late 19th century, though they could be early 20th century.  I hope to get my prescription in these.
