Kodak 66 Model II folding camera

I'm off to London for the day tomorrow and will be taking this little beauty along with me…

Kodak 66 Model II

Found in a charity shop in Newcastle upon Tyne a couple of months ago for the princely sum of three pounds the 66 was Kodak's only post-war folding camera that took 120 film and not 620 hence this label inside the camera!

Made in England between 1958 & 1960 the Model II has a 75mm f/6.3 Kodak Anaston lens with a three-speed (+B) Vario shutter, both of which seem to be in good working order and I'm planning on trying it out with a roll of Ilford XP2 film.

One nice little detail is this label, also inside the camera, bearing what I assume are the details of the shop where it was originally purchased.

James Mills (Chemist) Ltd.
