The Folding Pocket Special Senco was manufactured by Seneca Mfg. Co. beginning in 1912. The introduction of the Senco line was a departure into the roll film abandoning plates and cut film. The Senco's were made entirely of aluminum with no exposed hinges and covered in seal grain leather. The Special Senco was similar to the other Senco cameras except that it included a rack and pinion for bellows extension and an improved lens. This model was made in four sizes, 2 1/4 x 3 1/4 inch, 2 1/2 x 4 1/2 inch, 3 1/4 x 4 1/4 and post card size, 3 1/4 x 5 1/2 inches. Each were capable of taking twelve exposures without reloading. The cameras included a reversible brilliant finder and two tripod sockets. The camera was fitted with a extra rapid anastigmat lens and the Optimo shutter with speeds from time to 1/300 of a second. Original prices ranged from $42.00 to $60.00.
