An Old Camera Collection Used To Decorate A Photographer’s Office
This is probably the best wall you are going to see in the next few years, and you can’t unsee it, so be prepared for some major drooling. Photographer Marco Marques build a custom display unit to show off his old camera collection.
The collection shows 45 cameras (the 3 empty shelves have been filled) and took a few years to build.
Marco tells DIYP that he got to a point where his collection was too big for the two glass cabinets that he was using to store them so he decided to give them a proper display.
The display unit wasn’t bought from a shop, it was custom made and built for me by a family member, credit goes to Paul Sydes from Strictly Carpentry in Banbury for all his hard work, it turned out better than I expected
Marco tells us that he is very affectionate to the Brownies , and the one on the bottom shelf (I am not sure if it is a Brownie) dates back to 1902.
The collection took a few years to build and was collected mostly on thrift stores, pawnshops and garage sales. Surprisingly,while accumulating over a 1,000 of age combined, most of them still work.
Now, the only issue that remains is to get a good duster.
