Tiny 104-Year-Old Camera Visits the Car Graveyard

I’ve been taking ancient film cameras to document my local junkyards for a few years now, and one of my very favorites has been a miniature Kodak from the Ford Model T era: the No. 00 Cartridge Premo.

The No. 00 takes 35mm film, but not the cartridge-based type that made up the bulk of film sales during the second half of the 20th century. I managed to find some unperforated bulk 35mm film stock and cut my own backing paper for it, after fabricating film spools from scratch. You got six photos per roll at best on this camera.

The loneliness of the pulled-and-left-behind transmission is captured best on a century-old cheap film camera.
