This camera was previously owned by James P. Roarty of Roarlias Photography in Washington DC. He was commissioned by both the Republican and Democratic parties in the 50’s and 60’s for photography. If this camera could talk I am sure it has many personal friends it has photographed. The camera comes with a Certificate of Authenticity of it’s in the political arena.
