I also am the proud owner of an Argus; and have had dismal luck getting a decent pic with it. I attribute that to my lack of skill. I treasure it less for its utility than its historical artifact-ness (to coin a word).

Argus cameras used to be made in Ann Arbor, Michigan, minutes from where I reside, in the semirural area near Detroit. The building that housed the factory is still standing, and has been variously a Salvation Army building and a warehouse.

I used to be on their email list but may get on it again.

This is beautiful! It seems like it could be a lovely advertisement for the camera.

I have an Argus C3 Matchmatic coming in the mail and I'm really excited.
