NaBloPoMo – Cameras – Kodak 35B

Kodak of course like everyone else got into the 35 mm camera business.  They first started by buying a German company which made there first 35mm cameras (Retina line).  Of course WWII interrupted that line.  Production resumed after the war.  Later they made cheaper ones in the USA without the Retina label.  This is one of them.  The Kodak 35B.  It was in production from 1961 to 1962 and had a list price of $89.50.  Nifty thin is Kodak now has a two part list of all the cameras they made:  Part 1 and Part2.

This one I believe was given to me by my sister Rhetta who had a bit of a camera collection.  When she moved, the box cameras went to yard sales, the 35mm cameras to me and she kept the folders.
