Old camera value?
« on: July 25, 2013, 06:23:11 PM »
Hello again!  I've got quite a bit of old stuff for you all to help me with!  This is an old camera we found in the basement.  I'm not sure of its year, but it is made almost entirely of paperboard material and still has an old piece of film in it.  Its apparently a Tower camera, and it has a place for a flashbulb.  Any help in identifying the year and value of this golden oldie would be much appreciated!  Please excuse my poor photography, I'm not up to taking brilliantly positioned pictures or something today! haha!

I have seen these without the flash selling for around 20.00. They seem to be fairly common. Nice looking item. Sort of Art Deco

Sears Roebuck used the Tower brand on their cameras back in the mid 1950's and 60's. The cameras were produced by various manufacturers, depending on model.
