I did fix the Techniques Tomorrow column.
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.
Great fun, these back issues. I look forward to seeing more. Thanks.
