Just a tip for anyone who wants a picture frame. Don't go to town. Have a look around a few charity shops, you may well find a suitable frame with another picture in it. You will get one dead cheap just swap the pictures. PS don't forget Gift Aid. SB

Here are a couple of Kodak folding cameras I aquired a few years ago.
The one on the left is a Junior Six-20 with Twindar Lens made between 1934 and 1940, it uses 620 size film. The one on the right is a Canadian made No. 2A Autographic Brownie with B&L Lens made in1920, it uses 116 size film and has a window in the back, along with an attached scriber, so that the photographer can write a short note onto the back of the film to identify the shot. Thus the name Autographic.
