Pocket Seneca No. 30 & 31

The Pocket Seneca No. 30 & 31 Cameras were manufactured by the Seneca Camera Manufacturing Company from approximately 1905 to 1914. Designed as a compact easy to use pocket camera with a long draw with rack and pinion movement. The body is constructed of wood and covered in walrus grain leather and the camera bed was made of mahogany with ebony finish. The metal parts are made of brass with nickel plating and the bellows are made of black Russian leather lined with gossamer cloth. The No. 31 had rising and falling front, but both are made of all metal and reinforced for rigidity. The basic cameras were fitted with a double rapid rectilinear and Seneca Uno shutter with bulb and tube attachment. A duo or Autic shutter was available at an extra cost. The removable back incorporates an ground glass for focusing and an improved spring for securing film packs. Both cameras were available in 3 1/4 x 4 1/4, 3 1/4 x 5 1/2 and 4 x 5 inch sizes. Originally priced from $9 and $18 depending on size and lens/shutter selection.
