Kodak 1A Autographic Camera

The second in my collection of vintage cameras (although I don’t quite consider my Minolta XG-1 a vintage camera, as it’s from the early 80’s) is this foldable Kodak 1A Autographic camera.
From what I could find out, it was manufactured between 1917 and 1924 and the original list price was $21.
It takes autographic 116 film, which unfortunately isn’t available anymore.

    • Oh yes! I have a display cabinet and cleaned off the top shelf for my cameras. Might have to clean off the shelf below it soon! 😉
