• Kodak No. 1 Supermatic (front)

    I don't know the exact model identification.

  • Unknown Camera

    These 3 are old photos taken by by father back in 2004. Unfortunately I don't know the model. I like its boxy, angular design. Thanks to dusqweeze, I now know this is an Argus C3 camera. A low-end camera produced between 1939 to 1966.

  • Things Not Made in China: Parker Pen & Ink

    My Parker 51 Special fountain pen. Don't be fooled by the model name... the 51 Special model is anything but special. It's the base-line model of the 51 series fountain pens. Higher-end 51 models are made of gold alloy, this one is just white-metal. The…


  • Vintage Advertisement of Daimler DS 420 Limousine

    Hong Kong has been one of Rolls Royce and Daimler DS420's biggest markets. I cut out this advertisement that appeared in 1987 in Hong Kong's English-language South China Morning Post. When we moved to Toronto, this old advertisement came with me to Toron…

  • Freundshaftbecher by Kisslinger Krytsall-Glas

    I came across this etched / engraved glass cup at Toronto's St. Lawrence Market. I was a bit shocked to find out that the seller only wanted CAD $20 (USD $20, EUR 15, GBP 12.50) for it! I hope to visit Austria in my life time. And now I don't need to bri…

  • Den Danske Landmandsbank's 100th Anniversary

    One day a few weeks ago, I randomly entered the name "Den Danske Bank" into eBay, fully not expecting find anything, but the photo of a pair of candle holders showed up. "It must be a mistake," I thought. When I clicked on it, it turned out to be a pair…


  • Brass Tunic Buttons: Bank of Ireland

    Before anyone screams "gold coins!", no, they are not. They are brass buttons probably made for Bank of Ireland's uniforms (for tellers? Ceremonial guards? A brass or bagpipe band?). I came across them on eBay a while ago and there was a bidding war on t…

  • Save Your Money!

    There was a time when saving money was fashionable. These days, it's borrowing money for consumerism that is fashionable. By the way, I think the French Franc banknotes from the 1970s and the 1980s are the most beautiful paper money on earth!

  • Illuminated Belleek Fairy Lamp "Bacchus"

    I bought a Belleek Fairy Lamp "Bacchus" (God of Wine) at an antique show recently. It's more like barely "vintage" than "antique." The fine china candle lamp was made between 1982 and 1991... I knew because of the colour of the Belleek mark. The lady w…


  • World Camera Collection: Univex Mercury from the U.S.A.

    My dad collects vintage cameras. I think my flickr friends who are experienced photographers would be amused to see this. My dad's gotten hundreds of them. I'd try to upload a few more. My dad took this pic using his Fuji Finepix camera some years ago. T…

  • World Camera Collection: Ensignette from Great Britain

    Again, these are my father's cameras and photos. He buys and sells old cameras and most of ones you see here are not expensive actually, except the Hasselblad and the Leica. These photos were taken several years ago.
