My Dad's Camera

By sdixon2380
Here is a photo of my Dad's camera, it's a No. 1A Folding Pocket Automatic made by Eastman Kodak, made in Rochester USA. It's far from being pocket sized or automatic by todays standards.
I have no idea what year it is but I have photographs taken in the late 40s and many in the 50s using this camera.
That little roll wrapped in foil is the 116 B/W 400ASA film for this camera.
The only place I have found that can supply this film is based in Chicago. It has cost me $40 for the film, 20$ for shipping and a further 14 for UK Customs!......
I found somewhere to develop and print it (another 12) for just 8 exposures.
The photos came out really well with just a little fogging around the edges.
The first exposure was ruined as I forgot to wind the film on..........
