Kodak No. 2 Folding Autographic Brownie

Several years ago my Uncle David gave my a Kodak No. 2 Folding Autographic Brownie. My grandfather owned this camera as a youth – as a family heirloom I was very glad to add it to my collection!

I had always thought it would be fun to clean it up and try shooting, but didn’t get around to it until this spring. I bought a roll of 120 film from B&H, loaded it up, and hit the town.

The bellows ended up being compromised, and there was a pretty substantial light leak. Only three of the 8 pics I shot were even slightly discernible. It was still a blast to be able to hold and shoot my Grandfather’s 100-year-old camera!
