Some of you may remember the classic Brownie box camera. This Brownie Target Six-20 was introduced in 1946 for the whopping price of $3.50. It was produced until 1952, around 20 years before my Soviet made Helios lens was developed that I took this picture with. The Canon 60D that I used to snap the shot with wasn't developed until 2011, almost 60 years later.
