Hey, estateguy, thanks so much! I doubt if "all 2000" will ever get seen here, but I'll try to make a point of sharing one or two more every week or so.

I would LOVE to shoot old school with a camera like this. Have you ever used it? What kind of film does it use?

Well, uh, I pretty clearly state that it's a 35mm camera, so obviously it uses 35mm film! No lack of it out there, and in fact, Eastman Kodak just announced that they were bringing back one of the old favorites of the past for making color transparencies (slides), and that's Ektachrome. This particular camera, no, I haven't gotten around to using it, but with a collection of over 2000 cameras here, I'd really need a lifetime to try all of them. However, I can assure you, this would still serve as a VERY good little picture taker today. Hmmm, maybe I'll give it a test run this spring...

That's what I used to shoot with! Just pulled it back out! Mine is a Rolleiflex Automat, like the one in the article I posted mentions. "Later models like the 3.5F feature numerous improvements in the film-wind and counter mechanism, more robust construction, full-sync Synchro-Compur shutters, and coated lenses including the 75mm f/3.5 Zeiss Tessar, 75mm f/3.5 Schneider Xenar, and 75mm f/3.5 and 80mm f/2.8 versions of the Zeiss Planar and Schneider Xenotar. A nice clean, late-model Rollei 3.5F will set you back about $800-$2,000 depending on its cosmetics and mechanical condition. It’s a prize user-collectible for discerning film fanatics." It produces the most amazing images.

What a killer find man. I'm Jeff btw, I have particular interest in WW2 stuff but love anything old, I just joined so don't have much posted yet. I'm curious of your methods for storage of your books & paper items as these are probably the more difficult things to conserve IMO. Thanks.

Is there anything on the back? It may be the odd fellows too? I'm not sure.

Don't appear to be anything on back but kind of afraid to take any wood backing off frame because I can tell it's original and it's 122 years old at this point , only thing I can find says it was a Grand Commandery Knights of Templar of Georgia held in Atlanta may 9th 1894

What a cool piece of history and beautiful frame! Here are 2 links that are about this (or a similar event) and 1 link about the frame. It is a Masonic order, Knights Templar ceremony commemorative photo. The paper is probably quite fragile. The frame appears to be oak and gesso and is period appropriate. Though I can't see the back of the frame, I would imagine it is the original frame. Unless you want to use the frame in some other way, or restore/preserve the image, I would not open it up. The frame, and the paper are wood products (unless the paper is made from cotton rag.) Wood is acidic and paper made from it, or touching it, turns yellow and brittle quickly when exposed to light (think of a newspaper left in the driveway for a few days.) I added a few tags for you so it would be easier to discover!
