A vintage purchase

J’s parents came to the city today to celebrate Father’s day and to check out our new place and while we were exploring the neighborhood we walked into an antique shop and found this baby. A vintage Revere 55, 8mm video camera from the 1950’s. I had no idea what it was when I saw it, other than a sweet vintage camera, but after some online research I now know that the Revere Camera company was started in the 1920’s in Chicago and this camera was an affordable small video camera for its time. Oh, and I love it. :)
