Great Vintage Find

I checked out a new (new to me) antique store this weekend and I found this:

I was beyond excited!! And it didn't have a price tag on it so when I asked for a price I got a great deal - which I am pretty sure was due to the fact that I look 12! This looking young really works in situations like this - if you look 12 then clearly you are poor which means you get awesome cameras like this for cheap.  Oh and I bought this because it has a large viewfinder and I can take "through the viewfinder" (ttv) photos.  - which is totally a real thing.  Check out this post by Pink Couch - it's why I was on the hunt for one of these cameras!

How exciting!! I have been wanting one since seeing Tara's cool photos on her blog.
I would love to run across one someday.
Congrats!

I used a camera like that on my first job as a newspaper reporter back in 1975.
