To the moon, Alice

Apollo Hassleblad

Apollo 15’s Moon Hasselblad

Toronto, February 2, 2014. For those of you who watch television these days, many of the old serials run on some channels. Ralph Kramden and his wife Alice (Jackie Gleason and Audrey Meadows) were favourites as the Honeymooners when I was a kid. The title of this post was one of Ralph’s regular rejoiners when wife Alice upstaged him.

The other day, Russ Forfar owner of Kominek Camera repair, sent me a note on a Hasselblad that will be auctioned off shortly. Not your ordinary Hasselblad but the very one that saw use ON THE MOON by Jim Irwin with the Apollo project. About 350 shots were taken with it by Irwin, 299 on the moon. WestLicht will be auctioning the camera on March 22, 2014 in Austria.
