It has absolutely nothing to do with shaving, but I love this kind of thing. Via Watchismo Times, an 1886 watch camera.

I love old gadgets like that Smile

Here is an article from a Norwegian newspaper about the possible first user of such a camera in Norway - the slideshow at the top is an interesting slice of life of the late 1800's.

I must have deleted it from Photobucket during my periodic "housecleaning."
