American Optical Co. Irving Camera

The IRVING View Cameras recently introduced by the American Optical Company. was awarded the highest prize by the American Institute Fair. They express themselves as unable to see how a more complete, compact,light, handsome and serviceable camera could be made.

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.
