Car boot camera

A rather worn...but loved.. Agfa Synchro Box camera

What happens when an old camera can no longer take photographs? The answer is... it becomes an ornament reflecting an era when photography was far simpler. In this case the camera is a Agfa Synchro Box, Afga's answer to Kodak's highly popular Box Brownie, picked up at a car boot sale for £2.00.

The Agfa's a bit rusted up here and there and quite honestly it has seen better days. I don't think that it will see a roll of film through it again but i do wonder... how many photographs this wonderful little camera took during its working life? Where were the images taken....and of whom?
