What to say on such a simple camera (not to say basic)?
It is made of cardboard, provided with its lid, surmounted by an end of wire. You understood by looking at the photograph which it is simplicity even and which beside that, the Diana makes figure of robot of XXII century. Imagine that, there is not even finder (except the metal thing making function of, but it is really necessary?) no speed, a lens (out of glass). Even the aperture of the back (the lid of box made of paperboard) is so difficult that one would believe disposable!

But which could manufactured this brilliant camera of simplicity? There is no name of manufacturer.

I believe that it is McKeown which said, a few years ago, which a stock of these cameras had emerged on the market. I think that this camera results, because put besides a little oxidation on the finder, it is new, in his cardboard box of origin (without the least indication) and his note of use.

It is about a 6x6 on film 120.

A impassioned (and enthralling) Net surfer announced me that this camera was distributed free on the liner France (Silver face for first class, black face for 2nd class) during its inauguration..
