Unexpected find! Land Camera

Yay for snow days... yesterday I finally had some time to pull out the land camera that I picked up when we were cleaning out my grandpa's house after his passing last year. I had never seen one like this before and it was right up my alley since I started collecting vintage cameras. I'm not for sure if it was even used before, all of the original packaging and instructions were included and everything is in pristine condition. Last Fall, I used it as a prop and it wasn't until I went into Lawrence Camera downtown recently that I learned you can still get film for these cameras! By the way, Lawrence Photo has a pretty sweet vintage photo collection and the owner is so helpful and it's a great local business. I ordered film online (since they didn't sell it there) and a new battery yesterday so I'm super excited to see if I can get this camera to work again.

Hailey Bartholomew used a land camera in a fusion video that she created and I'd love to use mine in future photography projects!
