Kodak Vest Pocket Kodak B, folding 127 roll film camera c1925

Kodak Vest Pocket Kodak, often simply known as VPK. Yet another rescued item from my stalwart scout - my Mum! Made from 1925 until 1934, this one is pre 1930 as it has the autographic feature, which was deleted around this time. Explanation of the autographic feature. Definitely aimed at the mass market, this camera is a step down quality wise from its 1920 forebear, although there were models with better lenses etc. Occasionally coloured examples in Vanity sets might be found, these are much rarer.
