I bought (cheaply) a Rolleicord about 25 years ago. Its viewing glass was broken so I never used it other than to put one roll through it. Your pictures make me want to find it and use it again.

Looks quite right, Alex. What lens?
I have a Rolleicord V with the Xenar lens and like it a lot.Same Xenar as yours.

Before Xmas I ordered what it seemed a good Rolleicord Va model from France to my parents in Spain, when I got there two of the front plate screws were really out... The front plate was really out of place... peeling the leather helped to screw them back, front lens has several cleaning marks and winding mechanism doesn't work well... in two rolls I lost 3 frames.
With the help of the ground glass I could see the infinity and close focusing was 'okish' so I shot two Neopan 400 rolls in the following days.
These are some photos of my home town Bilbao, some others will come later...
Roots - Bilbao.
Santiago Cathedral gate.
Town Hall and Nervion river.
Zubizuri bridge reflection.
Sunset near museum.
So far the problem with the winding is the only issue I have found after the shooting unless you consider sharpness is not the best?
Thank you for looking,

The Post Office must have been sweeping out the corners today -- we also received five Christmas cards!

The first apartment building is around 80-85% complete, the second one is closed in, and the foundation for the third building has been poured.

Across the road the town and patio homes section is being prepped with water and sewer lines, building pads, and the outline of new streets.

I hope to move before this all is complete, and 180 new tenants and owners move in.
