Ricolet at Train Museum 021009

Fairly simple 35mm camera, made in Japan, 1954.
Scale focus 3 feet to infinity, f:3.5 / 45mm lens, in B, 25, 50, 100 shutter.
Wind lock, accessory shoe, flash sync through ASA type cable plug.
High quality chrome plating.
I did the cleaning and restoration a few years ago.
February 10, a warm winter day, I loaded it with ASA 200 Walgreens print film and took it to the
Museum of Transportation in St. Louis County.

The camera performed remarkably well. Sharpness of the lens was superb for such an old and
simple design.
