Week 151 - No. 1 Folding Pocket Kodak

This is the oldest camera I have used so far, it was made over 100 years ago, and has subtle differences from the more common, later folding models. There is a single speed shutter with B and T settings, the un-named lens has a diaphragm with 4 marked stops, but no "f" numbers are given. It takes 120 film, and I have loaded it with my last roll of Shanghai GP3 black and white film. We will see what state the bellows are in in due course...
