Irving View Camera by Scovill Mfg. Co.

The IRVING View Cameras was introduced by the American Optical Company. It was designed as a more complete, compact,light, handsome and serviceable camera. The Irving cameras all have swing front in addition to swing back, vertical shifting front board. They have the Howe patent reversible back, fitted with self-locking ground-glass frame, and when desired, celluloid is used in place of glass for the focusing screen. One of the best features of the camera is the absence of detachable screws. An idea of this conveyed by the illustrations showing the camera when extended and when folded. A superb canvas case, the finest ever made, is supplied wit each one of the Irving camera. In order to convey an idea of lightness of these cameras, it is sufficient to say that the 5 x 8 size camera weighs only 3 lbs.
