This is a small camera that fits quite nicely into a pocket, as its name suggests. This camera is not in great condition but still not bad for over a hundred years old.
|The serial number for this camera is engraved on the back of the metal leg that folds down to support the front of the camera. I think this was the case with all the cameras like this that Kodak made.|
|The shutter release mechanism consists of the metal bar bent in two places and a lever. Pressing down on the metal part in turn presses the end of the lever and that in turn activates the shutter.|
|The camera collapses and becomes very compact, easily fitting into a pocket.|
|The door on the left is held shut with a spring. It can be opened so that the back of the film can be written on. This is where the camera gets named 'autographic.'|
|This picture shows the camera open with a take up spool in it. The collapsed accordion support mechanism can be seen as well.|
|This shows the film door. The inside locking mechanism is visible. On the right is a slotted hole that engages the take up spool for winding the film forward.|
