127 camera No.11 - VP Twin

This is a tiny Bakelite camera from the 1930s. It takes 16 exposures on a roll of 127 film. Apparently it was sold by Woolworths in the UK, they had a policy of nothing costing more the 6d (6 old pence), so the camera was sold in 2 pieces to comply with this rule.
When I found it, the shutter wasn't working, and while I normally wouldn't go anywhere near a camera with "WD40", I carefully put a tiny amount on the shutter from behind, and it immediately sprang back to life.
I transferred the last few exposures of the Efke film that I have been using in the Baldi camera.
