I made a mistake. I was out at lunch and decided to stop off at a thrift store to see if I could find an electric razor cord. I need a bi-post connector for my Crown Graphic. I figured I was safe because I had not seen a typewriter in that store for a couple of years.
I didn't think about cameras.
When I got to the section where the various old power cords were piled, I heard little voices crying out from a hook in the wall - help, help, help. Yes, a bunch of cameras were hanging there begging me to save them.
To be brief, I walked out with an SX-70 Model 2 (I hope the rumors of new film are true), a poor little Ansco Speedex (pre-war) with a bad bellows, an unbranded 35mm point and shoot for World Toy Camera Day on Saturday, and the prize of them all - a Bell and Howell/Canon Canonet 19 - the whacko rangefinder from 1961 with the film advance lever on the bottom.
I had promised myself I wouldn't buy any more cameras, but at least I'm out only $11.73. Yes, for all four.
