Flandreau Camera by American Optical

The Flandreau Camera folds up in so compact a form that the smaller size may be carried in a large overcoat pocket. In fact it embodies the advantages of the Scovill Tourist Camera, with much that is new and improved. The rods which are used to move forward the front of the camera are nicely adjusted, and are polished and nickel plated so that they add to the handsome appearance of the camera, and contrast well with its polished mahogany surface and the dark hue of its bellows. In addition to this portable arrangement the Flandteau box is reversible, has a liberal swing back and front and rising front board. The bellows is cone shaped and focuses by the forward movement. When closed for carrying the bed becomes a closing front board which is firmly secured at the top by a spring. The tripod head is fastened to this board so that in adjusting all that is necessary is merely to lower the front and fasten the tripod legs to the top, which is already secured beneath the board. The swing is held in any position by a new and very clever device. The ground glass is hinged as in English cameras, to throw over the top of the instrument.
