Nice Shot.
That is one great little camera I did some photography with an Argus some years back. My brother has two of them and he let play with one for a while.

Quite nostalgic.
Interesting contraption for an old rangefinder.

I've got a box full of slides my parents took in the fifties as well. Amazing color. It is quite the contraption, I must admit. Not sure how unique it is for the rangefinder mechanism coupled to the focus ring by a gear, but it still looks cool to me. And of course it has sentimental value.
