Avraham Soskinís Rolleiflex

During a work I was assigned to do at the museum I fell upon one very interesting object - Avraham Soskin's Rolleiflex Original Standard. A camera manufactured between 1932 and 1935. I asked to take it on a photo-ride, and surprisingly was granted permission. Join me in one of the greatest adventures of Photo-Archeology.

The full story of Avraham Soskin's Rolleiflex at:

Great work. It was a similar thrill, with a less distinguished Bessa II when I processed the first images from it since 1961, earlier last year. It is a time machine and seems to hold memories of the light from its own time. Thanks for sharing.

Thank you!
FYI, there's an Old Standard Flikr group:

The lens flare is very attractive in your OS shots made into the light. But with the lenses cleaned they don't flare as much – and as you saw, they yield very nice color.

What a cutie! (The camera isn't bad, either.)

I had one of those (cameras) from the late 1960s through the '80s. Picked it up in a flea market for pocket change.
