Roll 4: Equipment test roll.

I accidentally bought a Nikon F100 from Ebay.  I guess no one else wanted a camera with a scratched lens but it got even cheaper since the seller didn’t notice the wrinkled shutter and floppy meter selection switch.  To test the shutter and other features I ran a roll of long expired Tmax 400 through…
