    Happy 120th Birthday, Wollensak!

    The Rauber and Wollensak Optical Company was started on July 1, 1899. Happy 120th birthday to the company that brought us the Verito, Vitax, Velostigmats, Raptars, and scores of other great lenses, shutters, and optical products.

    While it lasted, Wollensak had a reputation for quality and the respect of its peers. There’s probably no more informed praise than Rudolph Kingslake’s: “for almost seventy years the name Wollensak represented some of the finest lenses and shutters made in Rochester.”

    To celebrate, I’ve compiled a timeline of the Wollensak Optical Company’s rise and fall available here:

    Wonderful link there! Thank you for posting this!
    I steal time at 1/125th of a second, so I don't consider my photography to be Fine Art as much as it is petty larceny.
    I'm not OCD. I'm CDO which is alphabetically correct.
