Vintage Photography - Soho Myna

I brought this camera on ebay for £12.  I've had film cameras in the past as I was growing up, but I was really interested in using a camera with the bellows front.  This one is a 'All Distance' Soho Myna and dates from the late 1920s to early 1930s.  The camera is all metal and takes 120 film.  I purchased my film from Retro Film Supplies and had them developed using this website  Their website is easy to navigate and would highly recommend using them. 
Once I received the film I had a trip over to the Isle of Wight and took these photos...

Although the camera didn't really focus very well on faces, I think they turned out quite well.
