More Old Streets (4)

Looking towards Rue Jules Sandeau, from Rue des Sabots. This imposing 18th century building is now home to a picture framers & artists supplies shop, but I'm not sure it was always a commercial building, although the first floor balcony suggests it may have been.

 

These German made Kodaks are very small, so they cannot be easily converted to take 120 spools, meaning that the spools must either be re-machined to fit, or the film re-wound onto 620 spools in the darkroom or in a changing bag, which is a nuisance, and a shame also, because they are well made, often with excellent lenses, & Compur or Prontor shutters, and deserve to be better known.

 

1934 Kodak Vollenda 620, f4.5/105mm uncoated Schneider Zenar lens, X2 yellow filter. Foma 400 at box speed, D76H 1+1, 12mins @21C. Scanned @1200dpi on Epson V500
