datasheet_loginThe Century Camera, Model No. 21 was manufactured by the Century Camera Company in circa 1903. Described as teh most popular of moderate priced cameras. It is similar to the model 20 except, with the addition of a fine rack and pinion adjustment for accurate focusing and an upgraded shutter.

The brass hardware is highly polished and lacquered. The brass front provided a rigid lens mounting with a rising and falling front with an automatic bed clamp.
