Salford ? Camera ?

Image copyright Mark Page

Picture taken in Salford within a mile of the Bargin Booze picture shown a couple of posts down. Which is the real Salford? either, neither or something in between?

Oh and guess the camera that this was taken with and receive a big bear kiss like the one below. It's not a Holga or a Diane by the way........

Ensign selfix with 6x6 frame? (be amazed if thats right) but amazed equally if you could manage to smuggle a bear into N.I.

Mark Page said...

No but almost as random. Clue 1961 takes 6x6 & 4x4 the above picture being 6x6. By the way Andy when you getting the blog up and running?

Andy Clarke said...

Is it yer old Rolli...

Mark Page said...

No not a Rolli or a Minolta, Last clue then I will reveal over weekend. It was "EMPIRE MADE" which I believe was Hong Kong and oddly has a Brown leather case of far more quality than the camera itself! The case is Made in Germany. It has 3 apertures 8, 11 & 16 but only one speed 1/50....

The only other thing i can think of is possibly a Halina of some sort, my knowledge of chinese cameras is limited to say the least!

Mark Page said...

Well done Andy you got it! Yes it's a Halina 64! And my current camera of choice for two ongoing projects......

Andy Clarke said...

haha, thats fairly random. Is it in good condition? it captures a nice light regardless!

Mark Page said...

Yeah it's still good, I even have a little flash bulb gun for it. It was my first camera given to me as a child by my Nan. So special.
The two projects I'm using it on are in a way about memory and sentiment hence it's new lease of life, it seem to fit. Well guessed by the way!
