🚀Unlock AR

Imagine folding your camera in the 1920s - this was unheard of until now.

About the Model

This rare folding pocket camera in a leather case was made by Eastman Kodak in Rochester, NY. This model was made from 1914 to 1927. This was an autographic camera: it had a small window on the back where photographers could write notes on the negative with a metal stylus. Inventor Henry J. Gaisman patented the autographic feature in several patents between 1913 and 1914.
