It doesn't really matter if that vintage typewriter you're eying still really works, or if the Polaroid camera you're scrambling to buy runs out of instant film, because they look beautiful, just being displayed.


Apartment Therapy's house tours are usually envy inducing, but it's mainly due to textiles and interiors; this time, San Francisco resident Philip Maisel showed off something to make any geek jealous: his vintage SLR and typewriter collections.

Maisel, who says he is inspired by nostalgia and loves "old things," doesn't just have these to show his vintage geekery; check out AT's slideshow of his place to see more vintage cameras and a mounted shelf filled with fancy camera lenses and a vintage video camera.
