I enjoyed looking at you 35 Petri camera. Many years ago when I was in
the military at Ft. Bliss in El Paso, TX, I bought a 35 Petri camera VIA
postal mail. It was in 1954. I loved the camera. It was stolen out of
my car. I cannot remember the specifics (details) of the camera, but it
probably had the f3.5 lens. I hope to find another one sometime on eBay.
Best wishes and merci.

This camera collector’s site,
Vieilalbum.com, is quite nice. It is run by a Frenchman named Michel. He
has a short, but hopefully growing, section of techniques that he is
building such as this one on How to Change the Cover Glass of a
Daguerreotype. I thought the page of pictures of the packaging from glass
plates was a very nice touch. He also has a pictorial guide to Leica
camera models. Short and sweet. I like it.
The forum looks interesting, but I need to work on my French skills.
The only difficulty I had was with viewing the photo albums. I use firefox.
With it, his photo albums displayed poorly. The pictures became a
continuous horizontal row of pictures that required a excessive scrolling.
I pulled it up in internet explorer and the site displayed beautifully.
All in all, it’s a nice site.

Thank you so very much for sharing your
love of photography, old and new, with all of us on the web. Your
collection of old photos is remarkable, and your selection of older
cameras is wonderful to browse. You are an inspiration! I, too, collect
cameras – nothing fancy, but I do have a hundred or more cameras from box
and folding cameras to 4x5 view cameras and Nikon/Canon SLRs that I use
professionally ( I am a commercial (TV) producer / cinematographer).
Seeing your collection of both cameras and prints kept me spellbound for
several hours - mon Dieu, look at the time! I should be in bed!
Again, thank you very much for a truly enjoyable site – keep up the good
work. I have especially enjoyed having a glimpse of your family history
via photos... Truly they are treasures not only for you, as family, but
for us all who appreciate exceptional photography.

Visited your website and was particularly struck by your thoughts on
how old cameras have lives of their own. Every time I look through the
viewfinder of my 1929 Rolleiflex to take a picture, I wonder, what else
has this camera has seen? What tragedies, joy? I thought I was the only
one who thought like this.
Thanks for sharing
