    Here is the original before any editing. The front of the book is kind of hard to read it says " Picture Taking with the Nos. 2C and 3A Pocket Kodaks Kodar Lens f.7.9"

Emile, My studio is a spare bedroom, nothing real big and I just have bought a few things at a time. I have been working so many hours lately I really haven't done any work in there only some still life for BP, hope to change that soon as soon as my work slows down, I really miss doing portraiture work =o)
