allergy alley

i was out at a friends place in the country, and spotted a photo in an open photo album of what he said was an old family orchard ... he said his dad had taken it 50 or 60 years ago using an old camera with a lens that swiveled and that took really wide angle images ... it was a small old faded photo with a bit of a greenish tint and dark around the edges, but it was fascinating ... he wasn't sure what happened to the camera, but said is was a cheap plastic body and a plastic lens that rotated as the picture was taken ...

 

on the way home i stopped at a nearby orchard and tried to catch an image that is similar to the one he showed me ... a bit of cropping and a few textures, and here's close to what it looked like.

 

anyone know what kind of camera it might be?
