I added to my
nipple-tassle vintage camera collection with this 1940s Ensign Ful-vue from Al’s Musique Boutique recently. It’s a quirky looking thing and very dusty, but I’ll load up a 120 this weekend and give it my best shot. Wish me luck…
If you haven’t been to Al’s tiny shop on Cheltenham Terrace, in Heaton, yet then you simply must. You can borrow my car. Go on… take it. Better still, arrive in your classic Austin Healey as Al’s Musique Boutique (and Gentleman’s Emporium) is a retro haven for the Geordie Gentleman, selling oddities and kitsch curiosities, as well as vintage clothes, vinyl records and other one-off goodies. And nipple tassles. I did a shoot with Al and his fellow chaps earlier this week so I’ll post some photos soon.
