The family box, an Agfa, about 1945. Film was hard to get, so I flipped the 
internal wings to get 16 
on a 120 roll. With the help of a family friend who worked for Argus (this 
was in Ann Arbor), I 
modified the shutter to make flash contact on the T setting, using a C3 
flashgun she snaffled.

Them war the daze.

Didn't descend into 35mm until 1959 (Retina Reflex.)
