Kapawl Camera

The Kapawl patent hand camera was manufactured by J. Lancaster & Son from approximately 1896 to 1905. Kapawl is pronounced 'Cap all'. Designed as a daylight loading camera which takes photos on roll film. Two models were produced. The No. 1 took exposures the size of a carte-de-viste (2 1/8 � 3 1/2 inches), and the No. 2 took exposures in quarter plate size. A wood box camera covered in quality leather with a strong leather handle. Two spools located in the front of the camera stretch the film across the back for exposure. A key winding mechanism provides exposure count indication.
