Old lenses, post your samples

Please don´t hesitate to post your own samples here, I know that a lot of photographers find it interesting to see picture taken with old lenses.

I prefer the uncoated ones, made earlier than 1945. Here it is possible to find lenses which are not only sharp, this ones have unique characteristics.
Now I start with a lens from the small swiss maker Emil Suter, located in Basel. Named "Stella" 160mm f/5
It is not an anastigmat but made in the 1920th. It is a kind of soft focus lens with a very interesting rendering. A late child of the pictoralism.

This sample is made with f/5. Ilford FP4+, Adox FX-39 II developer and negative scanned with the Epson V700
