Conley Camera, Model X

The Conley Model X Camera was manufactured by the Conley Camera Company of Rochester, Minnesota from approximately 1900 - 1916. This camera was designed to take Post Card size images of 3 1/4 x 5 1/2. Ideal for landscape views when used horizontally and full length portraits. The camera was constructed of solid African mahogany wood, dovetailed, rounded corners and hand rubbed piano finish. It was covered in genuine seal grain keratol. The bellows were made of red Russian leather, gossamer lined. All metal parts were made of brass with nickel plating and highly polished. The back is non-reversible with a spring actuated ground glass focusing screen and hinged leather back panel. The lens was a high grade double rectilinear and the shutter was a Conley automatic with pneumatic and finger release. It utilized the Conley flexible valve plate holder, a reversible view finder and two tripod sockets, and an adjustable all metal rising and falling front. The camera measured closed 2 5/8 x 4 3/4 x 6 7/8 inches.
