[rollei_list] Re: Rollei TLR - The History by Ian Parker

It's a history of how Rollei got started up at the turn of the 20th century
by Franke & Heidecke, their initial product line (stereo cameras) and then
the subsequent history of their TLRs (through both wars). It's a fairly
quick read, but gives you some sort of insight into how large the company
grew, when it reached its pinnacle, and how the SLR ultimately brought it
down. A nice overview of the company's history with only one unfortunately
"black eye" that occurred around WWII.
