Ansco Memo Half-frame

Introduced in 1927, the Ansco Memo is a beautifully crafted 35mm half-frame camera that was one of the first America 35mm cameras to sell in any quantity. Despite its boxiness the Memo’s weight feels right in the hand the the action on the shutter release minimizes camera jitter.
