Memory Recorder & Memory from My Teen Years

Retrieve this during Chinese New Year from my Mum's place:

My first camera that I "inherited". The Contaflex SLR made by Zeiss Ikon was introduced in 1953 as one of the first 35mm SLR cameras equipped with a between-the-lens leaf shutter. This particular model is the Contaflex III launched in 1956 is equipped with a Zeiss Tessar 50mm f:2.8 with helical focusing.

I have many memories captured with this camera although the lens by then had fungus that could not be removed. This was not equip with a light-meter hence most of my shots were guesswork but it worked out quite ok.
