autographic junior, kodak autographic junior no 1aThis beautiful guy is a Kodak Autographic Junior No 1A, made in 1914 by the Eastman Kodak Company in either New York or Toronto. Its a folding camera meaning that it has bowels that expand, and the autographic part of the name is because there is a place on the back of the camera that will open allowing you to use a stylus to write directly on the film. This fantastic camera I got off of Etsy has the stylus still and after purchasing it I was able to find the leather case for it as well. I am so charmed by this camera and it appears to be in working condition, which means hopefully I can convert film for it soon. It takes 116 film which is not made any more but I’ve been playing around with re-spooling 120 film for quiet a few other cameras and its very easy when you have the right spools. I wish to pick up another Autographic camera soon just for display, one I don’t mind getting a tad dusty on the bowels as its really just absolutely beautiful.I bought the leather case for it afterwards from a different shop, it has black velvet on the inside and this metal clasp that is engraved with company logo. It’s such a wonderful camera!autographic juniorautographic juniorautographic juniorautographic juniorautographic juniorautographic juniorautographic juniorautographic junior, kodak autographic junior no 1a
