Kodak Retina IIa

The Kodak Retina IIa is a 35mm folding fixed lens rangefinder, made in Germany in the early 1950s.  The front door opens from the side and is unlatched with a button from the bottom of the camera.  The camera can only be closed when the focus is set to infinity and is closed by holding in the black marked releases at the top and bottom of the lens assembly.  The camera is mostly assembled from metal.
