My first camera was my mother's Kodak 620 Box Brownie which I used with out-of-date Kodabromide paper instead of film. The first camera I bought was a new 120 Roll film Wirgin Folder. About a year after I bought the Wirgin, I started using the High School's 4x5 Speed Graphic.
The first 4x5 I bought was an ancient RB Graflex. The second was a used Linhof Technika - III. I still have both of them.
