  11. Thanks.
     
  12. Thanks, Marc, another nice window into the past.

    It took me some time to figure out the acronym RFDR - the articles are interesting, and those bargains are still valid, although maybe a Contax II or Leica IIIc would not fall in the bargain category today. A bit puzzled about why a Retina was not included.

    Keppler vintages are always a treat to read.
     
  13. Great fun, these back issues. I look forward to seeing more. Thanks.
