CHALLENGE: Take a Picture Of The Oldest Surveillance Camera You Can Find

In my travels lately I've seen some really old cameras. I won't share my pictures just yet, but believe me, we're talking decades. So I figured we could have some fun with this.

Find the oldest (or oldest looking, as age is hard to determine definitively) installed surveillance camera you can. Take a picture. Post it.

It must be in the field. No digging through the junk in your basement or service stock.

$50 to the oldest/best.
