    First exposure! I expect this is the first frame from this camera in many decades.

    Rolleiflex Serial Number 19xxx.

      Same wall as the ivy, judging by the brickwork. The dark chamber (camera obscura) seems to be working fine on this.

      And Eli the Bearded, your considerable powers of observation are sharp again. Same brickwork.

      And you've also read my mind...the little cubic chamber that I worried about is light tight. Worried about a missing (and highly idiosyncratic) screw for the pressure plate that also left an opening, but happened to have an early 'parts' Rollei "Standard" with exactly the same screw that I borrowed.
