Chronology of cameras Goldstein 

After the WWII, Goldy was a very large popular success. This small 6x9 box (film 120) made of paperboard had the great originality to be manufactured in several colors. It was declined in black, red, green, blue, in havana, in red wine and white. I thought a long time that if the coloured versions are rarer it should be due to a difference in price, but the extract of the catalog below shows that the price is identical whatever the color. It was to forget that the end of the Forties and the beginning of the Fifties were one period of austerity, where the black was synonymous with serious.
