Old cameras go on forever.

I was hoping my camera would return from long service (4 years of faithful work) leave. But, it seems it has decided to retire to the camera museum. Interestingly in my museum of family cameras, the oldest ones still work. There are 3 Kodak cameras; a SIX-20 "BROWNIE" C, Brownie Junior 620 and a junior 616 that has a bellows lens. Similar to the 616 is an Ensign selfix 420 also written on it is "EPSILON" is this related to "Epson". Must Wikipedia that.
They all use 120 roll film, still available. One camera has a roll still in it. I discovered that to my surprise, and quickly closed it. Now I can't remember which one it was. I will open them again one day in a dark room. It would be quite exciting to process it!
