Kodak n°3 Folding Pocket

A red bellows allows to date approximately a camera as being prior to 1910/1912. This one has, in addition, a preset distance system that was used shortly on the No.3 FPK. This restrict the period of production from 1904 to 1908.
On the stand, there is the number 30947-E, which can further refine the period between 1906 and 1908.
Now, if you open the back, the full name appears.

The lens and shutter are extremely simple. Rise and fall adjustments are available. The viewfinder may be rotated for a landscape shooting. A stand is well hidden for this type of shooting. In the photo, I slightly pulled it on the left of the bed.
