Old but lovely

I've always wanted to collect something. The closest I've got to collecting something was having a book of stamps when I was about 10, but that book is long gone, most likely buried under piles and piles of barbie dolls.
I was in the op shop the other day (looking for frames) when I found this lovely little thing.


A bit battered definitely, but I love it none the less. It was pretty cheap too.
It was when I came home and sat it next to my great - grandfather's camera and my polaroid...



that I decided I am going to collect old cameras :).
