Day 144: The Argus Camera Museum pt2!

A precision machine made of inexpensive Bakelite. They are still in use today: There was a C3 Matchmatic used in […]

Day 138:On the Road Again!!!

I am taking Leslee back to Ontario to finish up stuff left from her Mother’s passing.  Taking the indirect route, we drove the first 500 miles in the rain.  Then the sun came out in the Black Hills!
