Week 343 - Voigtlander Bessa 46
Voigtlander, like Zeiss Ikon, made a large range of folding camera with various formats and specifications. This one is pre-war, it takes 16 exposures per roll. Although fully functioning, it has, like many examples, lost the ring on the front of the lens giving the lens names and details, originally there would have been a swing in yellow filter attached to this, and these filters are probably the reason that this ring is often missing, as it is quite easy to catch the filter and pull it and the retaining ring off.
