Ansco Viking Readyset 1950's

Hiya all, my mother gave an old camera she had that she found while looking through some old stuff. It's an old Ansco Viking Readyset from the 1950's

Take a look here!

I can't wait to try it out... just got to find me some 120 Film rolls.

Hi Andy,picked one up few months ago in pristine condition,non-working shutter
though.For a buck,what the heck.Have seen post elsewhere with folks descibing
how other lens/shutter combos were retro-fitted.Never have seen any images
that were with those post,Im a little sceptical about that(cobalts,kodak ektar?,cmon on now).
Would really like to try mine,thinking if I could find a aunt like your mom,might be back in buisness.
Shutter can be used on bulb with mine,thinking about 'old fashioned shutter"
...a lens cap.Nifty lookin little cameras though,120 capabilty very appealing.
