Retro nerd heaven

There's been a smug spate of iPhone owners (of which I am, admittedly, one) posting pictures of themselves unboxing their new toy.

So I thought I'd post the 1910-1920s equivalent: unboxing a beautiful new Vest Pocket Kodak camera (the box says model B, but they look a little different). This looks like the comparatively rarer c. 1915 model.

But don't worry, geeks: I've made sure that there's an iPhone in there if you look carefully. You can see the full set here (or click these selections for bigger versions). If any of you know where I can get film and processing, let me know: I'd like to try this beauty out.
