    The Photomic Tower

    On a recent promenade around town, I stopped by my usual Pho place on St-Denis street, near Jean-Talon. After delicious soup, I stumbled on the street in postprandial bliss, when I suddenly caught this in my collimator:

    Great Scott! It exists! The Nikon F Photomic Tower, courtesy of Bell Canada, and dating probably from the same era.

    I think every Nikonian ought to make a pelerinage to this shrine at least once in their lifetime. We'll go for soup.

    Even though I don't have a Nikon, it does look interesting!
