Trying to identify a Ricoh from the 1960s

Little bit of a long shot here . . .

Is anyone familiar with Ricoh camera models from the 1960s or knows where to look? The camera I am looking for had a fixed lens. It was compact, probably had a fixed focus and was purchased around 1967 for the purpose of architectural photography by my father - which I assume meant a wide angle lens. Were there fixed lens 28mm cameras back then? Or perhaps it was a 35mm lens. Any information you could provide would be greatly appreciated.
