Kodak, No.2 Folding Autographic Brownie camera, c1916 -1926

Folding 120 roll film autographic camera made by the Eastman Kodak Co. Rochester, New York, probably made about 1918. Another donation, and another that is not used. The reason being holed bellows, since the lens and shutter combination are identical to the restored No1 Autographic in the collection I decided to maintain its originality. The bellows on this camera are a bit overstretched, a small number of pleats was used, and in order to keep the deep fold from cutting off the light from the lens they were made so that they are nearly flat when opened. Fortunately we are able to publish two photographs from an identical camera. Kodak ball bearing shutters seem to last forever, the one fitted here required no work and is still merrily clicking away eighty years after it was made. The camera is shown opened with the roll of film that was found inside it. Unfortunately it yielded no results.

The processing tank is a much later donation, arriving in 1999. For an explanation of the Autographic feature see Kodak Autographics.
