Ciro 35 by Graflex, Early Winter Days

In the post war late 1940's Perfex produced the Cee-Ay 35, then the company died and the patents were sold off to Ciro Camera Company of Delaware, Ohio. Ciro modified the design to make the Ciro 35, and then they handed it off to Graflex. Graflex continued the line through a few color scheme variants.
I have several examples of these cameras, different variants and different conditions.
Some of mine are no longer working despite my efforts. The construction was robust, but I think they saw heavy use by their early owners.

This one, pictured below, is one of my more functional. It is identified as a "Graflex" on the back.
After cleaning and minor repairs I loaded it up with a roll of Kodak 200 and put it to a little use.

The cold weather came early this year, cutting my excursions short.
First I shot a few frames along the Meramec River in Valley Park, followed by a few images around home.
Finally I finished it off with a visit to Powder Valley Conservation in Kirkwood.
