G'day from Cedar Grove

Postby Cliff on Sat Jul 12, 2008 5:40 pm

G'day everyone. I discovered this BB by accident and have been lurking here for a few weeks so thought it was time to register and introduce myself. I've been taking snaps since I was 10 years old and received a Kodak Box Brownie for my birthday (that should give you some idea of my age!). Recently decided that I wanted to become slightly more serious about photography and take photographs rather than snaps so I upgraded to DSLR. Happy to be here and looking forward to hearing from some other users and perhaps posting a few images soon.

Welcome Cliff. From my calculations you must be at least 108 seeing as the BB was released in February 1900 :lol: :lol: :lol:

Pretty close :lol: it was a 620-C (1946-53) so I'm slightly younger.
Thanks for the welcome Chris and Phillip

Hi Cliff - welcome to the forum :)
Sooner or later we'll organise a minimeet, and you'll have to come along - but until then, would love to see some photos :)

Welcome Cliff,

Fred, that's not a serial number, it's a model number. I don't still have the original camera but I do remember that it was a Model C because I always wanted a Model D which had a "close-up" function - very sophisticated.
Thanks everyone for the warm welcome.

Well there you go Cliff, I've got the close up function, thats a high tech bit of gear for sure. :up:

Dad's been gone for 10 years now, but damn, he certainly planted a seed with that gift.

Hi

Im at Cedar Vale so even closer. I think there are a few locals on here. I have a box brownie too that my mother got off my grandfather. She wanted my cousin to have it and now that she is gone :( was going to take it down there next week when I go to take new born shots of her new baby. Do u think I should be hanging onto it?


Thanks heaps

G'day Littlesprocket, You certainly are close - just across the highway. I'd hang on to that Brownie it might be worth something one day. Sorry for the late reply but I've been travelling for the last month - just arrived home today.
