those wonderful old Graflex cameras of yesteryear

portrait by a Graflex camera – Vanity Fair 1922

Toronto. what a great year! 1922. And Folmer and Schwing, a Kodak division at the time, advertised in Vanity Fair with this attractive portrait of a little girl.

Charming portrait. Charming camera. The Folmer & Schwing company had a complicated history, beginning in New York City as a bicycle compny.

The cameras became the standard tool of news ¬†photographers and even have their own collector’s society and journal. My thanks to George Dunbar for discovering this 1922 portrait advertisement for such an historical camera.
