52:320TXP – Week 50 – Hancock County


It wouldn’t be a 52-project from me without something from Findlay! Anyone who has attended an Film Photography Project meetup in lovely downtown Findlay, Ohio will immidiatly recognize this beautiful building. The Hancock County Courthouse was constructed between 1886 and 1888 to replace an older brick structure that once sat on the same site. This came about when Findlay was decided to be the seat of Hancock county. Constructed in three styles, Palladium, Victorian, and a favourite of mine, Richardson Romanesque, the building certainly strikes anyone who visits the downtown. If you get a chance or are driving past, stop by. The Irish pub is a favourite of mine to eat a meal at, or if you’re a film nut, head to 111 E. Sandusky Street and say hi to Leslie at The Mecca/Imagine That!

  1. That is a great building, well captured. I note a distinct lack of electric and telephone lines, unlike here where it is difficult to get good architecture shots because of them. I hope to make a the FPP Findlay gathering next year. I can bring a camera you don’t have for your camera review project. Maybe the Balda Beltica, they are pretty rare.


    • I think next year the FPP event is going to be in Cali, which sadly I will be unable to make! But if our paths cross I would love to do a review of the Beltica!


      • I just happened to look on eBay and found two other examples. That particular camera came with three different lens configurations, a Zeiss Jena Tessar (my current one), a Meyer-Optik Trioplan, and a Ludwig “Meritar. I ordered the two with the Trioplan and Ludwig, will be interesting to run a roll through each to compare. It is my smallest 35mm camera, even smaller than my Leitz-Minolta CL.
