Houghton Ensign Selfix 16-20 Model I

A nice, small and elegant folding camera which produces 4 x 5.5 cm format views

It dates from the 50s and allows you to use either 120 or 620 rolls.
The lens is an Ensar Anastigmat, 75 mm focal length and apertures to 1/4.5 on a 4 speeds Epsilon shutter  (1/300 1/100 1/50 and 1/25) plus B and T.
Oddly, for a camera showing off a "British Made", the distances  ring is scaled only in meters.

There is no system preventing from double exposure.
