Kodak, No.1 Autographic Kodak Junior, c1920 (Rochester built)

Folding No.1 (120) roll film autographic camera made by the Eastman Kodak Co. Rochester. Made from 1914 to 1924, this one differs from the other one in the collection in that it is a Rochester built example rather than a Toronto camera. Looking at the two cameras is interesting as it demonstrates one of the major success factors of the industrial age, mass production and standardization. Even though these two cameras were made maybe years apart and certainly in different factories in different countries, the components will swap across to the other. This Rochester version has slightly different equipment fit however, with larger diameter shutter, different waist level finder as well as an Anastigmat lens. As received this example was an utter wreck, however it has been partly restored as it is complete with its original stylus, antinous release and dealer badge. Donated by David and Jackie Clarke.
