Film Cameras: Minolta Autocord


Dad’s 2 1/4 roll film (6x6cm) twin lens reflex, the Minolta Autocord 75mm f3.5.  Below is a poorly exposed chrome of dad with it around his neck.  He kept a sunshield and yellow filter in the accessory kit on the strap.  I still have them but the leather strap did not survive.  This photo was probably shot with the Argus sometime in the late 50s.


This is another chrome shot with the Argus c.1958 at the camera shop in St. Thomas  in which dad purchased the Minolta.  A fellow photography enthusiast and shipmate poses in front of Jack’s Cameras.  The cameras and cigars were duty free.
