Railway Workshops Dunedin 1960

Railway Workshops Dunedin 1960
In 5th year Med we went to the local factory for Public Health studies. I took my trusty Minolta 16 (I) and ignored instructions not to take photos.
Using slit FP3 and the camera to wide open and slowest I snapped away because nobody imagined a small camera like that in those days.. My hands were steadier then!
Modern OHandS officials would have fit at the hazzards evident here but that was the way it was.
Development? Beutler? Scanned from a 3"x4" wet print of long ago.

forever is a long time, Ch'an, Kevin Allan have particularly liked this photo

Hi Murray , welcome to the group !
"and ignored instructions not to take photos" --- didn't 007 use such a camera ? ;-)
Fine picture ! Rob

G'day Rob. Thanks for the comment. Surely 007 would've used something better, say a Minox? I tried to scan the negative but it was pretty awful. Then I found this old print and scanned that.
I was reading about Minolta 16s and discovered the first one was a triplet lens so it is eligible to go here. I didn't know that.

Hi Murray,
The soviet clone (the Kiev --forgot the number-- ) also uses a triplet (remarkable because it is named "Industar" and not "Triplet" .. )
