Spartus Full Vue with Flash Gun attached

My Spartus Full Vue camera arrived this afternoon! It's a brown bakelite twin lens camera that takes 120 film. It's a very, very basic camera. The top viewer has a piece of plastic that pulls up to reveal a very convex piece of glass. There is no focussing, no nothing! It is literally point and shoot. Actually mine has a setting on it called "Time" that I would guess works like "b". It's hard to tell but the lens looks to be plastic. I can't wait to try it out!

I scored on this camera. It came with a box, a flash gun, instruction booklets, assorted literature, 2 rolls of very old 120 film (1970's), and a 620 film reel. Herold, the company that made this camera, produced several different version of the Full-Vue. Sadly mine isn't the prettiest I've seen but it's still pretty darn neat.
