Antique window shopping in Crockett, TX

As I mentioned in a previous post, we spent the last Fri and Sat in East Texas, at the Big Thicket National Preserve, and also visiting some towns in this part of the state.  We enjoyed Nacogdoches, the oldest town in Texas, and we spent time strolling around downtown and visiting antique shops.   Around 1700, the Spanish began establishing missions in and around Nacogdoches, and we saw some of the old buildings from the town’s past.   In looking around I also found some interesting cameras, like Kodak brownies.  I found several, ranging in price from $20 to $50.  I took a picture of this Six-16 model, apparently manufactured in the US between 1938 and 1942.  I loved the trapezoidal body and the metal construction!  I think the name Six-16 came from the type of film it used, Kodak 616 film.
