Photos From Voigtlander Bessa I

First roll from a Voigtlander Bessa I 6x9 folder. I went on a trip through the Palouse this past weekend and stopped to photograph some old buildings in the small towns along the way.

And I bet it had the triple element Vaskar...

I've done a number of Bessa and Perkeo models...

They have been great for the most part.

Yes, Vaskar lens. The camera arrived in working order. Shutter and self timer work just fine. Bellows look great. I'm happy with it and will use it plenty.

Have the same, not used yet. blind viewfinder but will get a working one. have original rangefinder. is matching the lens exactly with two snapshot-markers. Point and arrow(near).
How is the lens? can you compare to other old bessas. From the wiki i can see its the last version. cannot believe since it has no rangefinder built-in.
and lacking second tripod-mount. just opened a new thread about these questions.
