Kodak n°1A Folding Pocket

The Pocket folding with the front which must be drawn was manufactured from 1899 to 1905. Two telescoping legs allow the installation in vertical or horizontal position.

The trigger is very unusual because it has two buttons located perpendicular to each other. On the picture, they are distinguished in the bottom left of the front panel. You push one or the other, the second retracts jointly and severally. Where it is more complex is that one on the left corresponds to B, one located below corresponds to T. Diantre!

A pull tab (barely visible at the top of the plate) is pierced with three different diameter holes. They pass in front of the lens, acting as diaphragms.
