Round the back of the Cathedral

Winchester, Hampshire. Round the back of the Cathedral. Now, this camera proved to be rather a surprise. The focal plane is curved, and this goes some way to maintaining a respectable edge to edge definition. Despite not having a case and being loaded for several weeks not a single stray light beam entered the camera. Furthermore, despite its primitive construction, it doesn't scratch the film.

This camera takes 8 pictures on 127 roll film, so the negative is a reasonable size, all the same, it's surprisingly good. The enlargements you see here are about the maximum you'd want to take them.

Refueling point at Dunbridge Despite the curved focal plane, the focus towards the edges is markedly softer than the middle, but all the sign posts are readily legible and the exposure close enough to get a print. Designed to take family snap shots, The little plastic Brownie 127 succeeded.

Lymington in the New Forest area of Hampshire

MV Red Eagle, one of the fleet of car ferries that sails up and down the Solent several times a day from Southampton to Cowes on the Isle of Wight. Built in 1996, she is seen here in 2003 but was subsequently rebuilt in 2006 looking significantly different afterwards.
