Richard,Thanks for the comment! If I remember correctly, we paid $8.00 from an antique mall for this camera, which is a pretty decent price for a place full of antiques (cameras seem to be neglected at these places).I'll have to upload a better picture of this camera soon, though you can see the wear and tear just from the paint scratches alone!

I found a Falcon Miniature at an estate sale. Think I paid $10 for it. Had never seen one before. My question is, how did you take a photo? The lens doesn't seem to open.

I was born in 1931 and have this camera and a few pictures made with it (tiny pictures). Mine doesn't have a tripod socket and the view finder is metal (2 pieces which fold into each other). The view finder doesn't look like the ones I see on camera sites. Casing in good shape with no scratches. Also have a picture of an ad from a 1946 magazine where it is priced at $3.98 - mine is a Miniature Deluxe model

Camera History Project

This website is the culmination of years of antiquing. My wife and I enjoyed travelling around the United States, stopping at various antique shops and finding different cameras. Since 2012, we have collected hundreds of cameras, and there are some that we have, but that have not made it online yet. When the real world slows down, we plan to resume our hobby! Feel free to check out our online collection, and using the comment system, let us know which you've had and which is your favorite!
