What’s this?

Highly entertaining images captured from The Stasi Museum, which immortalizes the paraphernalia and tradecraft of East Germany’s infamous state security apparatus. These shots highlight the Cold War era’s infatuation with hidden cameras, like the one below, with its lens disguised as a coat button, allowing the camera itself to be concealed under the garment.

Other examples include cameras hidden in tree trunks, watering cans and of course brief cases — straight up Sean Connery style. See the images here.
