The Pony Premo Senior was manufactured by the Rochester Optical Company beginning in 1896.

Constructed of select mahogany, covered with fine grain leather and the metal is polished and lacquered brass. Fitted with a Victor Rapid rectilinear lens and a victor shutter with pneumatic release and iris diaphragm. Either glass plates or a roll holder can be used on this camera. This camera was available in threes sizes, 4 x 5, 5 x 7 and an uncommon 6 1/2 x 8 1/2 inch. Originally priced at $28.00, $38.00 and $48 respectively.
