Rue Jules Sandeau, Guéret 23000 Fr.
Another from the only Vollenda test roll. This stylish building looks to date from the mid 18thC, but could be later, but whenever it was built, it's got a lot of pzazz! Now a shop selling artists materials and prints, the first floor balcony and the classical proportions give it a very "renaissance" appearance.

Although called Kodak, the Vollendas were based on cameras designed by Nagel-Werke, Stuttgart, before the company was bought by Eastman Kodak in 1932. Well designed and built, but they used the wretched 620 films, so unless you are prepared to re-roll 120 films, they are only shelf queens! This one was beyond realistic repair so it became a parts donor!

1935 Kodak Vollenda 620, f4.5/105mm Schneider Xenar lens, x2 yellow filter. Fomapan Ultra 400 in D76H 1+1, 13mins @21C. Scanned @1200dpi on Epson V500
