No 1A Pocket Kodak Camera

Manufactured from 1926 to 1931 by Eastman Kodak Co. A folding camera for 2 ½ x 4 ¼ inch negatives on A116 film. It is an autographic camera even though it didn’t indicate that in the name (see the metal stylus in it’s place on the front next to the shutter/lens). It had twin struts and a pull out bed. This example, in black, has a 127mm f/6.3 Kodak Anastigmat lens set in a Kodex No. 1 T-B-25-50 shutter. Note the odd lettering font used for “Kodak” on the front prop strut…
