Show your photos from a vintage folder

I got a folder bug again, so it's time to dust off my Weltur and put it to some good use. So, how about some inspiration - would be nice to see some pics.
Here is mine, from Welta Weltur. Not a very recent, but just to get this thread started:

Great Photos! Looking at these I wonder why old folders are so underrated. One more from Weltur with Xenar 2.8:

Agfa Super Isolette - 75/3.5 Solinar

Old folders are ideal for landscapes, and a little bit fiddly for people photography.

Roger Hicks rides a motorcycle. He'd appreciate the homemade trailer hitch on the rear, in addition to the substitute rear wheel.

I had a roll recently developed that had a few strong images, but this one is actually my favorite shot in a long while.

Kodak Monitor

I rehabed the Special lens and shutter before recently selling this great camera on a well known international auction site and was astounded by the results.

I don't do digital except with an old Sony, that uses a floppy, to post on the auction site. I shot this famous building in Fort Worth as a test. I scanned the WalMart pic on my $49.95 all-in-one scanner-printer-copier. I viewed the neg under my Nikon dissecting microscope. I'll be damned if I couldn't see detail in the toenail of the near angel!

I'll never be convinced that the European lenses of the day were any better!

@ puderse
Beautiful picture! And re Kodak lenses, on this side of the pond I've had excellent results from a (Six-20 A) Anastar .
... and the (picture of) the Monitor itself.

The Kodak lenses, among them Tessar-Heliar designs, 1930-1960, had a good reputation. If a picture appears here it is made with a Monitor 620 in Pisa several years back. Tri-X most likely, developed in Rodinal 1:50

Two cropped images taken with an Iskra 2 with Fujichrome Velvia 50 can be seen here:
http://www.flickr.com/photos/7365105...7617314551255/
Note the detail on the head of the peacock. The resolution I get from the Iskra 2 vastly exceeds my results from a Moskva 5 (not shown on Flickr site).

I don't know about you guys, but don't these images have some type of cool resoultion or depth to them that sets them apart from DSLR cameras. They seem so life-like to me and almost 3D. I am going to be getting some ektar back from walmart that was taken with my Suzuki Press Van Camera. Will post.
