Many thanks to Ken Halse from Hemel Hempstead for donating several cameras to my collection. They had been in a box in his loft for years; three were his own and the others were from his aged aunt who was a great traveller.
She retired from school-teaching in 1973 and was Saga's most travelled customer! She prepared slide-shows from her photos and gave presentations to  local societies and church clubs. She visited Europe, India and China and went all over the UK. Unfortunately for us her slides have disappeared.

Ken was given the Box Brownie Flash when he was 11 years old and remembers he was slightly disappointed at the time as he really wanted one that you held to your eye. Ken sent me a couple of his early photos from his Brownie. taken on a trip to Cornwall. He eventually got what he really wanted with the Agfa Rapid,finally buying a "proper camera", the Olympus Trip, when he could afford it in the 1970s.

My Charity donation was passed on to one of the charities he supports.

Cameras Ken Donated;
Kodak Brownie Flash 111 with flash, Agfa Rapid 1 with flash, Olympus trip 35 with flash, Yashica T3 Super, Fujifilm Clear shot 20, Olympus XA2.
