Thanks

Popular Photography Magazine (US) August 1956 - some scans from this great magazine: Popular Photography Magazine (US) August 1956 Edition - timallenblog

Some fascinating stuff in here, some of you may enjoy it.
Nice one! Coincidentally, I just posted a thread on getting back into RF photography. You wouldn't happen to have a Pop Photo from the late 70s with an article on Alfred Eisenstaedt trying to recreate his ballet photos with old, uncoated lenses for his Leica II?

Very cool. Nice to see the old classic cameras. Love their prices.

The Minolta adds show the old company name before it was Minolta. That was fun, thanks.

Some call it the arm pit of NYC.

Leica Summicron f/2. Nice!

Don't think Leica is located at that address any longer... Leica Gallery is off of Broadway if my memory serves.

No problem, I will have another look through it and put some more up maybe. So annoyed with myself now that I didn't buy the whole set!

I enjoyed looking at these pages too.....my father collected older cameras so I've probably held a few of these or something similar.....I would love to hold some of them now!!
