Red Imperial Mark XII at the Missouri Botanical Gardens

I found this stylish old gem at Booth's Corners, Pennsylvania (suburban Philadelphia) this summer.
Asking price was $10.00, shutter was working, and it was Red, so how could I go wrong.
Camera does 12 square exposures, 2 and a quarter inch negative size, on 620 film. 620 film is virtually unattainable, so I rerolled some ASA 160 Fuji 120 onto 620 spools. Film was from my freezer, and some years out of date.
I took the camera to the Missouri Botanical Gardens with me when I went to test out the Spotmatic F, and shot the two cameras side by side.
Below are what I think are the better half of my efforts with the Imperial.
