I think it takes 120 size film, which is medium format, and places like Adorama and B&H both have it I'm pretty sure, and Freestyle. There are a few film photographers on here who have used older cameras who could help you if need be. (Gee I'm not encouraging you to use it or anything! LOL) Older mechanical cameras work for years, would be a shame to not give it a try, you've got yourself a treasure (unless you've tried the shutter etc. and something's jammed or not working).
