History

Possibly the most important 35mm American camera. The Argus A was largely responsible for popularizing the 135-format in the U.S. Produced by Argus in Ann Arbor, Michigan from 1936 to 1941. The original price was $12.50. The camera featured a collapsible 50mm F4.5 lens and a Bakelite body. The shutter was supplied by Ilex. Three body types were manufactured. The A is most often found in black although it was also produced in gray, brown, and olive drab colors. An Ivory white version was announced, but no actual examples have yet been observed

  • Bookends

    A LightAndTimeArt set of bookends is the perfect accessory for any book or DVD collection, be it small or large. These simple yet effective accents not only keep your novels and DVDs from tipping over, but they also add character with a wide range of designs, styles, and colors. All my bookends are elegant, and unique, while they can keep a home book or DVD library looking uniform and neat. They all use a combination of vintage photo, or film equipment and accessories making them great way to complement a movie room or home theater.
