What am I?

We drove to Gävle yesterday in order to visit my aunt and family. While there she showed me something and wondered if I knew what it was. I had no clue! This is what it looked like…

Do you know what it is?

I’ll post the correct answer here (as a comment to this post) within a day in order for you to have some time to guess… 😉

    Föremålet syns mig vara ett bil- eller motorcykelbatteri som åker på en liten vagn.
    Det liknar ju också en brödrost och kan vara en liten blompress. Sen är fantasin slut.

    Du hade ju flera ledtrådar. Så t.ex. såg du storleken och materialet lite bättre än jag. Mig synes föremålet vara omkring 20 cm långt och av trä. Där visade sig nog batterigissningen vara fel men det kan ju invändigt vara beklätt med syrabeständigt material.
    Så kan du ju bättre se ovansidan och baksidan.

    And the correct answer is: a camera. This specific model was released in 1933 and it was bought by my grandmother in 1933 or 1934. You can read more about the camera at http://camerapedia.wikia.com/wiki/Univex_Model_A

    I suppose I made it a little harder to figure out what it was by taking the picture with the camera standing up as I thought it was way too easy to figure it out if I had it standing the normal way. 😉
