High Aims from the old GDR - 9 year old optical engineers.






Not a Leica item but impossible to resist in a local Charity shop was this East German Optical kit marked suitable for 9 year olds.I wonder how it got into the UK with its German language instructions. Many well made parts largely in plastic and seemingly complete.However the box illustrates the 'toys' one can make but on turning to the instruction book I was reminded of 'A' level Physics of 56 years ago.All good stuff but probably more use to our present day students of 18 than  9 year olds, It all brings back thoughts of the East German Optical industry that is no more.
