Do this qualify for SLR camera?

I have been wishing for a Nikon D60 camera but still has no budget to buy one. I saw this post from Sketches about their very first SLR. I remembered that we have a vintage camera similar to their SLR pic. Being at home, I looked for it and found it neatly stashed in our cabinet. Below is the camera. We used this during my elementary school days circa 1993-1995. I already forgot how it came to my mom's posession. I didn't know if this is a SLR or not. If it is, we did have an SLR camera pala! Nice! I tried searching for it's specs online but no luck. Mas matanda pa ata to sa internet... hahaha.. sobrang vintage. Alam ko wala siyang defects and this should still be working fine pag nilagyan ko ng film at ginamit. But the question is, would this camera still take good pictures? Ahaha... tinakot ko na naman sarili ko.... Naalala ko kasi ang mga pictures sa Movie na "Shutter". Waaaah...toinks! ^_^
The historic East Germany Contax S, 1949, the first pentaprism SLR for eye-level viewing. The single-lens reflex (SLR) camera uses an automatic moving mirror system which permits the photographer to see exactly what will be captured by the film or digital imaging system, as opposed to non-SLR cameras where the view through the viewfinder could be significantly different from what was captured on film.
