Ensign box brownie

On the Paris trip I began experimenting with an Ensign Box camera.


The Ensign is an English version of the Box Brownie, probably made in 1926 – a simple roll film camera with minimal settings – two for focus and 3 for aperture and a big guess for shutter speed.  Fantastic results considering the age and relative lack of sophistication of the camera:
