camera shy

last week i received the most extraordinary package from my flickr friend mostlyaccidental. he'd been cleaning out his attic, and found a few things he'd rather give to a new home, than sell or throw away. he sent me a scale-model 1951 volkswagen beetle, a couple of books about vw beetles, an old green box brownie, and this little gem -- an old girl scout camera. i'm still trying to date the camera, but just looking at it makes me happy.

 

thank you, david! this definitely found a happy new home, even if harvey's a little camera shy.

 

UPDATE: this little baby's from 1957! wheeee!
