Through the Viewfinder Tuesday!

Packard, originally uploaded by William 74.
I love the effect I get shooting through this vintage, late '40s Spartus Full-Vue. The frosted glass viewfinder lends it a lot of grain, and the fact that it's a reflection adds another layer of...I don't know what. Distortion? Distance? It reminds me of old kinescopes of sporting events being watched on a vintage Philco. Very fuzzy and low contrast.

I don't know what event this would be, though. This is an old, rusty, damaged Packard Four Hundred, a '55 I guess.
