Karin in the Garden
I have an old 1930's Kodak Retina that seems in reasonable condition. It came from Karin's Tante Emmy's estate. I thought I should run a roll of film through it to see if it works okay. It seems to! Actually I am quite pleased with the image quality given there is no focus feedback, all controls are manual (of course). One even has to cock the shutter with a lever on the lens before depressing the shutter release.
Another interesting detail, it uses 35mm film just as any of the more recent cameras do. Doing a bit of reading up I found Kodak introduced the "daylight loading film cartridges" in 1934 and this camera is from that same year so one of the first to use them.
