...taken with an old Lubitel 1. A Soviet TLR, often described as being a close copy of the pre-war German Voigtlander Brilliant, but actually derived from an other Soviet TLR; the Komsomolets. The camera was made somewhere between 1949 and 1956. The blur on the corners of the photo is caused by a mechanical flaw.
